How to Grow Oleanders from Seeds
1. Fill a planting container with equal parts of sand and dampened peat moss.
2. Sprinkle the seeds you are going to grow across the surface of the planting mixture and then cover them with a thin, 1/8-inch layer of the same mixture.
3. Water the seeds very lightly without uncovering them. Keep the soil moist until the seeds sprout.
4. Place the container in an area where it can get full sunlight to produce strong seedlings and temperatures are 75 degrees F.
5. Thin out the extra seedlings so they don't crowd each other. Leave a 2-inch space between each seedling. Thin the seedlings by pinching the stems between your thumbnail and forefinger.
6. Transplant the seedlings into the garden in the early summer by digging a small hole the same size as its root mass with a small hand shovel.
7. Water the plant immediately after planting and then only every week or so.
