Today, we have put three varieties of guava seeds to soak—I’ve found the easiest way to germinate them in to just put them in a tiny container with water and wait for them to sprout. The varieties are Hawaiian Pink Guava (Psidium guajava); Strawberry Guava (Psidium cattleianum); and Yellow Strawberry Guava (Psidium cattleianum var lucidum); all from Trade Winds Fruit.

Put the strawberry seeds in the freezer: Ferry Morse ‘Alpine’; Mignonette and Heirloom Pineapple from Renee’s Garden, Baron von Solemacher, source unknown, possibly Etsy; White Soul from Baker Creek

Cold stratified some Dwarf pomegranate (Punica granatum) (4 weeks), Chinese Kadsura (Kadsura longipedunculata), (3 weeks) and Baby Kiwi (Actinidia arguta) (4 weeks). All from Trade Winds Fruit

Soaking the passionflowers, Lilikoi (passiflora exults var flavicarpa); Red Rover (Passiflora edulis); Orange Passionfruit (Passiflora edulis); all from Trade Winds Fruit, and Ferry Morse Sow Easy Passion Flower (Passiflora caerulea)

Soaking: Lupines: Texas Bluebonnet, Arroyo, Russell, in fridge for a week
