How to Plant Cypress Tree Seeds
1.Purchase the amount of cypress seeds you need from your state's nursery or from a private nursery. Make sure the planting is in accordance with your state's laws and that you plant on property that you own. The seed often will be sold within a plastic tube and will be priced according to the size the of cypress tree that the seed will produce.
2.Plant the cypress seeds during their time of dormancy, which is between November and March. Freezing weather will cause the roots to die, which is why cypress trees are primarily grown in the South. Make sure the area you choose to plant contains moist soil. However, you want to make sure the seeds won't become flooded in water at anytime during growth.
3.Use a dribble or shovel to create a hole that is at least a half foot deep. Insert the seed with the root collar just below the surface of the ground, and then close the hole by packing the soil firmly over the seed.
4.Closely monitor the seed to make sure the soil never becomes dry. This is an easy task if you planted the seed in a swampy location, but nearly impossible to maintain in dry and flat land. Water the seed if necessary, but never add water if the soil is already wet.
5.Continue monitoring the seeds and looking for signs of growth near the root and bud. Sometimes growth may not happen for up to a year or more. Be patient and make sure enough sunlight gets to the seed when it's available.
