Thanks, Maggi, good idea to have these here. Unfortunately, the first link doesn't work, but the 2 supplements are fine.

 edit - link now corrected

Please note: The link given for Ontario Rock Garden & Hardy Plant Society's Germination Guide appears not to work. Please use www.onrockgarden.com and click on the menu item "Germination Guide"

 edit by maggi : This direct link should work:

Dr. Deno's information is usually  my first place to look for germination advice.  I use his extensive list as a base to which I add more information.  About 700 additions that include an additional 300 species so far.



Well done Rick - lot of work involved there from you.

Dr Norman Deno's "Seed Germination: Theory and Practice" and the two supplemental books originated as  free downloads at the USDA National Agriculture Library online site.  The copies are available here to download from the SRC site. 

The books of Norman Deno are in the Public Domain so they are free from copyright so we  load them here as a service to members.

Sad news came yesterday about the passing of Prof. Norman C. Deno.
His contributions to deciphering seeds germination requirements will remain unsurpassed and an inspiration for generations to come.

There is some information of Native American flower seeds  here :

Klamath-Siskiyou Native Seeds:  Native Seed Germination Chart

"It can be difficult to find information regarding seed germination for native plant species. Through our own native plant propagation and growing experience, as well as long-term seed germination experimentation, we have developed a seed germination chart for species we often have in our inventory. This chart specifies the pretreatment needs for seed through cold-moist stratification (chilling requirements) or heat treatment, for natural or artificial seed germination, as well as recommendations for planting seed outside for natural seed germination. Germination rates can vary so your own personal experimentation is encouraged!"

Thank You so much, Maggie, for sharing those links.  I have printed coppies of all 3 books; but the

PDF files are going to be much easier to use.  I combined all 3 into 1 file.  I adjusted the page numbers to conform to the

text; and rewrote the bookmarks as index tabs using Acrobat X  full version.
