Up for sale is one pack of 50 Mock Orange seeds. For zones 4-9 Mock Orange create a 8-10 foot shrubs that flower in spring to early summer producing flute like white flowers.

We offer flat rate combined shipping on all orders, no limit on the amount or type of seed packets.

These seeds are not cold treated and need 30 days in your refrigerator to properly germinate. Add your seed packet to one cup of sand or fine peat. Add in 2 tbs of water and place in a baggie in your fridge (not your freezer) for 30 days. After 30 days let your mix dry out and then scatter in pots or trays but do not cover as they need light to germinate. Place them very close to your light source. If your Mock Orange seeds fail to germinate after 21 days don't give up on them. Try placing your pots in the cold weather, or in the fridge for 2 weeks to cold treat them again, before placing them in a warm area.

When we start shrubs early we sow them in a 4" pot and add enough water to our soil so it is slightly moist, but not soaking wet, as if your soil is too wet your seeds will rot before they can germinate.. We then put a clear baggie over the top of the pot which is secured with a rubber band to create a green house effect. Here in zone 7 we then place this pot inside our house in a window that gets sun at least 8 hours per day. Don't add more water unless the clear plastic no longer fogs up. Once the seed germinates and is 2" tall you can remove the plastic baggie. In spring acclimate your seedling by placing in in direct sunlight for a couple of hours per day for about one week.

We generally leave most shrubs in their pot this first summer and transplant them into the ground the following fall. As with most shrub and vine seeds they usually have a lower germination rate of around 30%.

Mock Orange can be heat sensitive so if in zones 9 or 8 plant in an area that gets late afternoon shade. Once mature Mock Orange benefit by yearly pruning in late summer. Mock Orange is also sensitive to too much nitrogen in your fertilizer so it's best to only amend your soil with bone meal. We generally transplant winter started shrubs into the ground the following fall.
