Seeds need stratification-plant in a pot in summer; keep moist; put in a protected place over winter. Or place in a jar with something moist (moss, cotton, or sterile potting soil). Keep warm (68-86F) for 1 month, then cold (34-41F) for 3-4 months. Plant in large pot for another year, then plant. Generally, prepare the tree's permanent spot as you would any perennial crop.
