I wanna make my own gibberellin from salix to help seeds germinate in the stratifying process. Does anybody know if there is gibberellin in salix in wintertime and do have a recipe on how much bark is needed per liter water to extract enough gibberellin? I haven't seen so much info about how to do this, but I'm thinking that I just soak the seeds in the gibberellin-water now and after that I'll put them in a pot with soil and store them outside in the Swedish winter (that ends in April-May), any thoughts on that? But as I've understood it, with this method you could actually skip the stratifying part, they will germinate anyhow, any experience to share here?

Anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly first. Just look at this tiny ad:
