Question:
I have an italian cypress that is loaded with these balls about the size of a large marble. I'm assuming these balls are eventually plantable and will produce a seedling if planted and cultivated under the right conditions. Can you give me some pointers on how these should be planted for best seedling results? I simply hate to see any seed go to waste.
