Giant Sequoia Seedbox is now for sale nationwide in Norway.

Giant Sequoia goes by many different names. Botanically it’s known as Sequoiadendron Giganteum. In Norway, the specie is often known as Mammut tree, and historically by the now (mostly retired) name of Red Wood. Whatever name you use, the Giant Sequoia is a formidable pinnacle on any horizon. As the largest tree specie on earth by mass, it has a notorious image in popular culture as the tree so large you can drive through its trunk. For many, the prospect of growing their own Giant Sequoia from seed is an exciting one – your work could produce an iconic tree that draws carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere for the next 3,000 years. 

Growing Giant Sequoia from seed can feel a bit daunting. The specie has a reputation for being somewhat complicated to germinate and grow through the first few weeks, where seedlings are highly prone to damping off (dying from fungal growth). However, with the right approach, germination rates can be relatively high and damping off can be largely avoided. With that said, if this is your first time growing Giant Sequoia, be prepared for the possibility of losing some seedlings – even the most experienced growers will lose a proportion of their seedlings – this is just the nature of growing trees. A good approach to avoid disappointment is to grow more than you want, and if things go well you have some extras to give out as presents. 

The quick version

Not everyone will have time to read this full growing guide! Therefore, if you just want to quickly get started, here’s what you really need to know:

  1. As soon as your seedbox arrive, soak the seeds overnight in water.
  2. In the morning, drain the water away, leaving the seeds damp.
  3. Place the damp seeds in a sealed container that can trap in the moisture.
  4. Place the seeds in the fridge for 2-6 weeks (this process is known as cold stratification).
  5. Your seeds are now ready to sow, either directly into a seedbox; alternatively you can sow on damp kitchen paper or filter paper and plant seeds outside carefully once they have germinated.
