Growing Your Own Mountain Huckleberry Bush From Seed In 4 Simple Steps
# 1 | Soak your Mountain Huckleberry Bush seeds in warm water for 12-24 hours. Cover the container to keep the heat trapped and the water warmer longer.
# 2 | Fill a small pot with a moistened mixture of 3-parts sand and 1-part peat moss, 1-part potting soil to create a soil mixture. Sprinkle five huckleberry seeds onto the soil in your pot. Press the seeds gently onto the soil surface to anchor them in. Do not cover the seeds with soil.
# 3 | Cover your growing pot with a sheet of plastic wrap. Place the pot on a warming mat near a source of bright sunlight, such as indoors near a lightly shaded window or outdoors in a partly shaded cold frame. Use a location that receives at least six hours of natural sunlight each day.
# 4 | Watch for sprouts after about one month. Remove the plastic wrap and the warming mat after the seeds sprout. Put the pots in a warm, bright spot. Remove all huckleberry seedlings except the strongest, most vigorous seedling from each pot once the seedlings grow to 1/2 inch in height. Keep the pots in the warm, bright spot until the seedlings reach 2 inches in height, and then move them outdoors to a sheltered area that has light shade and is protection from strong wind.
