On an earlier thread I mentioned germinating clematis seed in zippy freezer bags using wet vermiculite, several people have e-mailed me since, so here goes.

Using a 5 or 6 inch square zippy freezer bag, add a handful of wet medium grade vermiculite, put the seeds in, shake the bag and seal with the zip.

Put the bag in a warm place, out of direct sun and do not unzip the bag, keep the constant humidity.

I took a couple of pictures of some texensis seeds, extremely rare and notoriously difficult to germinate, but well worth the effort.(

Here you can see the seeds have germinated in the vermiculite.

I have also used this method with other plants including lilium
