Guidelines for Seed Collection and Stratification of Common Juniper (Juniperus communis L.)

Mc-Cartan, S. A. and Gosling, P. G. Tree Planters’ Notes 56(1):24-29. 2013.

Common juniper (Juniperus communis L.) is the most widely distributed conifer in the Northern Hemisphere. In the United Kingdom, juniper is one of only three native conifer species. Juniper populations are declining, however, particularly in southern England. In some cases, nursery production is seen as a means of boosting these populations. This article, which provides practical guidelines for collecting and processing berries and for stratifying the seeds, is intended for nursery managers, conservation practitioners, and related professionals who are concerned with propagating, restoring, and managing juniper ecosystems.
