Magnolia seeds

I soaked them overnight, dried them and photographed them with a 5 eurocents coin to show their size, then got the fruit-flesh off with my nails (and kept it to put it on the birdfeeder) and the black seeds inside are now soaking overnight again. Tomorrow I'll need to scrub them, then place them in a bag with some moist sand and then put them in the fridge for 3 months at least before planting them. And then it may take 15 years to get a tree that is flowering !

Thanks very much for your kind comments and stars for yesterday's Blip of these berries in their pod !
