This practice guide introduces the principles and practical methods for collecting, storing and propogating from seed a wide range of woody species commonly grown in the UK. It is aimed partly at anyone interested in raising a relatively small number of plants, and partly at commercial growers - as a useful reference but without the legal aspects. The guide begins with information on flowering and fruit development , and recomendations for small scale collecting, handling and processing. It then provides detailed advice on storage, dormancy, and pretreatment methods for over 100 species. The guide concludes with tips on sowing seeds and raising seedlings
