  • SummaryHigh levels of germination have been achieved by sowing strawberry seeds on the surface of a peatbased compost and then placing the boxes in a mist-propagation unit. With this technique time-consuming pre-chilling treatments can be avoided without loss of germination. The few cultivars that do not respond adequately to these conditions can be further stimulated by pre-soaking the seed in 5000 ppm CEPA (‘Ethrel’) for 24 hours.
