How to Grow Morina from Seed

Morina grows best in full sun in a rich, moist but well-drained soil. It thrives in areas where mild temperatures, high rainfall and free-draining soil combine to create the perfect growing conditions.

Sow Morina in seed trays from January to March or from August to September for over-wintering. Scatter the seed thinly then cover with a fine layer of compost followed by horticultural grit. Maintain constant moisture levels without over-wetting. Germination normally takes up to 21 days at 65F. Once the seedlings are large enough to handle prick out into 3 inch pots and grow on before finally planting out in May or June.
