Hi Kelly,

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

The Persian silk tree's seeds are viable for germination. We recommend harvesting in autumn once the seed pods turn brown, keep it overwinter in cool dry place, avoid any direct sunlight. Sow in spring once the temperature reaches around 20c and all frost has passed. Sowing in a seedling tree in seed raising mix to start with, and transplant once the seedling developed 2 pairs of true leaves. 

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
