Seeds of holly have embryos or endosperms that are nonfunctional, or that contain inhibitors at the time of seed maturity, and require a period of cold stratification. Cold stratification is the subjection of moist seeds to low temperatures for a specified length of time before germination. For many years seed propagation was the principal method of producing new plants of many woody ornamentals. It was the least expensive means of propagation to produce a large number of new plants from a minimum of stock material. Seed propagation is still used frequently to grow many plants that cannot be propagated asexually. The main disadvantages of seed or sexual propagation are that it fails to produce plants true to variety and that it takes a longer time to produce a salable plant. When propagating woody ornamentals from seed, it is important to collect fruit as soon as it is ripe and before seeds have been di
