Question:
I have some seeds from some grapes. I would like to use the seeds to raise new plants, but I know nothing about this. Should I dry the seeds in some way? Then stoer them in airtight container or just leave them to the air? Any info on how to process these seeds and then how/when/where to plant them to raise some seedlings would be very much appreciated.


Replies:
Yes, air dry then plant in soil. If you plan to store the seeds, that's when you'd want an air-tight container. Otherwise, look into propagating by cuttings
