seeking advice on germination of cypress/juniper berries
« on: May 21, 2019, 07:28:38 pm »

Hello, i have some yard bush/trees with berries.. maybe cypress or juniper bushes?
They lean sideways, so you can walk threw them.. like a giant bonsai forest house.
  8)
Cuttings seem to stay green fooreaveer, but never root.
i havn't tried rooting hormone yet, but maybe next time..

Anyways does anyone know how to grow these berries?
this is picture i found on google that looks very similar to berries.. i can take pictures if needed..

This doesn't answer the question on germinating from berries, but perhaps air layering might be a reliable method of propagating through cutting. I haven't done a search but perhaps a useful area of investigation.

Junipers such as these are one of my all time favourites
I can't stop myself from chewing the cones (berries).
The only plant I successfully grew was from a rather woody cutting, I have no idea as to if it survived in the ground more than 2 weeks as I had to move away and it was hard to tell if it was actually alive or just still green. It was however successfully rooting before I planted it.
