The best way to grow Spicebush is to collect the red berries in the fall, delicately chew the flesh off the seeds so you don't crush the seed, and eat it, take the seed and plant it. It should germinate by the upcoming spring. The taste of the berry will linger with you for a while, but it freshens your breath and leaves a nice spicey flavor behind.

American plum germinates more consistently following cool, moist stratification at 36 to 41
degrees F (2.2-5 deg C) for 90 to 150 days.  Stratified seed should be planted 1 to 2 inches (2.5-5 cm) deep in
the spring or fall; for nursery culture, seeds should be sown at the rate of four seeds per square foot.  Seed viability is estimated to be approximately 5 years.  This species can also be successfully propagated via stem cuttings.

Poke Weed is a perennial plant that grows good in average soils in direct sun or partial shade and is hardy in growing zones 4-9.  For best germination results, soak the seeds in sulfuric acid solution for 5 minutes.  Poke seeds germinate best in the wild after being passed through a bird's digestive system. Birds love the berries, but they are poisonous to humans so do not eat the seeds.  Poke greens should be picked early in the spring before they get over 4-6" high. Boil in two changes of water before using in your recipe.

Seed germination for citron melon and watermelons:
There is no seed dormancy in cultivated seed- and watermelons, but germination is retarded under high temperature regimes. Germination can be accelerated by pre-soaking in water for 24 hours after scarifying the seed at one end, especially for cultivars which have a hard seed coat. Seed germinates best at temperatures of 17°C at night and 32°C at daytime and also at a constant temperature of 22°C. It will not germinate at temperatures below 15°C. Light has an inhibitory effect. (van der Vossen et al., 2004)

Growth, development and pollination:
Seed will remain viable for at least 8 years when stored dry at temperatures below 18°C. Emergence of the seedling takes 5–7 days. Cotyledons unfold after 10–12 days and the first true leaf appears one week later. In egusi melon lateral branches are produced on the main stem from node 4–6 and the first male flower is formed on node 8–11 at 35–50 days after sowing, the first female flowers on node 15–25 at 45–60 days after sowing. In watermelon both the first male and female flowers are formed somewhat later. The first female flowers often have poorly developed ovaries and fail to set fruit. Flowering peaks 50–80 days after germination. Flowers open shortly after sunrise and remain open only one day. Pollination occurs in the morning and is done by insects, predominantly bees. Ample deposition of pollen on all three stigmas is necessary for regular fruit development. Within 24 hours after pollination the pedicel starts to elongate and bends downward with the swelling ovary. The fruits of watermelon are mature 30–50 days after pollination. At maturity the green fruit stalk turns brown.

Cultivation details

Prefers a moist soil and a sunny sheltered position[138], but succeeds in most soils[1]. A frost-tender deciduous climber, it is grown as an annual in Britain[188].

Propagation

Seed - sow spring in a greenhouse. Germination usually takes place within 3 - 4 weeks at 20°c[138]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in a greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts.

Coral-beads - Cocculus carolina

Hardiness Zones 5-9

Deciduous; Exposure Sun to partial shade, soil, all types. Drought tolerant. Grows 10 to 15 ft. vine. Light green flowers in summer turn to shiny, dark red berries in the fall and stay on the vine into winter. This vine is a rapid grower, has dark green glossy leaves. Attracts birds.

Carolina Moonseed is a deciduous vine native to most of the states in southeastern United States. Leaves are dark glossy green and usually heart-shaped to 4 inches long and 4 inches wide, with sometimes significant variation in leaf shape. The vine itself can reach from about 10 to 12 feet with a 4- to 6-foot spread.

Blooming Time: Spring. The flowers are very small and inconspicuous. These mature into showy fruits in late summer-fall, forming bright red ¼ inch berries.

Culture: Cocculus carolinus need partial shade and moderately wet soil conditions. When grown in the greenhouse, use a soil mix consisting of 2 parts peat moss to 2 parts loam to 1 part sand or perlite. The plant should be kept moist at all times during the growing season. Fertilize monthly with a balanced fertilizer. It gets very large in pots, so pruning is needed to keep it within bounds. Pruning should be done in late winter or early spring before new growth begins.
 

Propagation: Cocculus carolinus is propagated by cutting of half-ripened wood or by seed. The seed need cold stratification of 3 months. Seeds germinate in 21-30 days at 68° F.
