Cleaning Viburnum dilatatum seed

Most people gather seasonal fruits for preserves. At the Garden we collect a selection of material for seed sowing demonstrations as class practical’s for the various horticultural courses run at RBGE.

Cleaning the fleshy part of the fruit from the actual seed is a messy and laborious process. One where it is important to work methodically and avoid cross contamination between the various fruit collected.

The colour range is wide and resembles an artist’s test pad when the correct shade of watercolour paint is searched for.

Please note: collecting seed in the garden is not permitted.
