    Some species seeds will not germinate well unless certain environmental conditions are met. There are enzymes in the seed coat that inhibit the germination until this happens. Some seed ( temperate North American species) requires a period of cold or freezing to trigger this process. Some Australian species seed is part of a "Fire Brush" ecology, and actually needs to be exposed to heat and/or smoke before it will germinate, often taking years. The use of GA-3 often breaks the bonds of dormancy.

    The best time to transplant any palnt is when it is in full and active growth, but really any time is suitable for the specie you mention. I believe I made a post on this subject that should still be up.

    Our editor will help you with the spelling/typing issues, and after awhile you will be correcting mis-spelled binomials on your own, lol.
