Hi there. I am trying to germinate Citrus seeds of the rootstock P.Trioliata (purchased from a Citrus Organisation locally). I am planning on budding my desired varieties on to these seedlings at a later time. This question is just about germination. Now that I have my cold frame (see "Want to Build propagator"), I am about to start on germinating seeds. I am about 7 weeks away from last frost in my area (its Winter down here in Australia) and I think that gives me enough time to get the seeds to a size where they can be potted up and out of the cold frame at that time for spring growth. (2 weeks to germinate, 3 weeks to first true leaf) I want to make my own if its cheaper, or should I just buy a seed raising mix from the nursery? I cannot find anything detailed on google. What mix do I put in the seed trays / flats? So far I have found that a general mix is 2 parts Peat (or substitute), 2 parts sand 1 part loam, with minor fertiliser and minerals. But is this good for citrus? Can I substitute Coir Peat (coconut?) for real Peat? Any ideas would be great. Any Citrus growers who might have handy advice please add whatever tips you can. I am doing this for about 1000 seeds (Should get about 20 trees after the learning process takes its toll ), so I want to get it as right as I can for consistant seedling production. Thanks Raphael in Australia.
