Chimonanthus pracox
[3 seeds-zaden]

Chimonanthus pracox
This shrub, which originates from China, grows to about 2m high. The flowers hang in clusters and are vaguely bell shaped but with long narrow pale yellow petals and a reddish brown centre. Above all they are intensely fragrant, and it is an advantage to have them accessible so you can appreciate the smell. A branch can be cut and brought indoors where it will fill a room with its sweet scent. The flowers can are often used in pot-pourri and to make perfumes.

Best sown late autumn or early spring. Pre-soak stored seed in tepid water for two hours, keep warm and moist for 3 days then chill for 5 - 8 weeks and sow in a cold frame. Germination is usually good, though it can be slow and takes place in 2 months at 13°C. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in a greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts.
