My goal in this article is to share some of my experiences growing this amazing plant from tea seed. I’ll discuss in detail how to take seed from germination to up-potting and, along the way, highlight some common pitfalls that novice tea growers might encounter.

Seed

This is important because even “sibling” seeds that share the same two parent plants (C. sinensis does not self-pollinate) may have alternative gene combinations that differ in performance. For instance, some genes may confer resistance to disease while others enhance cold hardiness. Purchase fresh seed. In the northern hemisphere, tea seed ripens between September and December. Get the seller’s assurance that you are purchasing seeds harvested during these months and just before the winter/spring season when you intend to start your seed. Once received, your seeds will keep, sealed in plastic bags, for up to two or three months under refrigeration (but you should try to start your seed immediately if possible).

Surface sow onto moist, well-drained seed compost. Just cover with a sprinkling of soil. Ideal temp. 23°C. Germination takes 1-3 months approx. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle to individual pots and grow on in the greenhouse for their 1st winter. Acclimatise and plant out when at least 15cm tall.
