|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
