Caring for Dalbergia Sissoo

    Sissoo seeds, cuttings and container seedlings are best planted in the spring. The seeds will remain viable for a few months, but you can store them for up to four years in a sealed container. Soak the seeds in water for two days before sowing; 60 to 80 percent should germinate in one to three weeks. Seedlings and young trees are demanding in light but sensitive to wildfires.
