Hi Filippo and All,

I managed to get some germination from D. stenopetala seeds last year. I
sowed seed under differing conditions to determine the best approach.
Essentially the only germination (10%) that occurred was from seeds sown
on pure peat and left in my greenhouse (Northern UK climate).
Stratification or sowing seeds into water was unsuccesful. Patience is
necessary as germination took 6 months.
