Sowing Instructions:

PRE TREATMENT IS REQUIRED TO ENSURE A HIGHER RATE OF GERMINATION, WITHOUT THIS ONLY 10% WILL GERMINATE.

Physically breakthrough the seed coat by cutting or (k)nicking the edge of the seed with a knife or using a file or even rubbing them between layers of fine sandpaper. All of these methods can be used to break through the seed coat. Once you have done this soak the seeds in cold water for 12-24 hours and successfully treated seeds will have imbibed water and swollen greatly. Any that have not could be scarified again followed by another water soak. Sow all the seeds, even those that remain small as they may germinate later

Once the seeds have become swollen with water germination is very rapid if the seeds are kept at room temperature and a root will emerge with a couple of days.

Sow the seeds individually in pots filled with good quality compost at a depth of about 1 cm (just less than ½ an inch) and the plants will appear very quickly if they are kept in warm temperatures.

Description

Also know as Persian Silk tree or Pink Silk tree, the mimosa has touch sensitive foliage and lovely airy flowers. It is hardy in most of the UK and can grow up to 25 feet in height depending on pruning and training.

Bonsai Mimosa trees are a member of the Fabaceae family and are a popular ornamental tree in the home landscape. Also known as silk trees and Albizia silk trees, these beauties have a lovely feathery habit with wispy pink to rose aromatic flowers.

Silk tree mimosa growing is really quite easy. Albizia silk trees need a little space to accommodate their arching habit, so be sure to plan for this accordingly when planting. Roots like to spread out as well, so it is wise not to plant this tree close to a sidewalk or other cement patio where it could cause disruption.
Included in package:

– 20 Albizia Pink Tree seeds
