Gathering larch cones from your own trees can yield surprisingly good results. Simply gather up a load of fallen cones and place inside a metal biscuit tin. Leave this next to the fire or in a hot water cupboard until the cones open and the seeds start to fall out. Put the lid back onto the biscuit tin and give the tin a good shake. This will yield a whole load of seeds ready to be broadcast onto compost filled pots. Water the pots and leave on a tray on a north facing window ledge. As the seedling emerge give them some time to develop roots and then transplant into small flower pots


These seedling are now in their 2nd year and showing promise for transplanting back into the woodland at some future time to help replace those that have been felled.

This technique can be used on any cone bearing tree.

No money required ! - Just shake and add water.
