What stops the seed from germinating while it is floating for weeks or months in the ocean?
Seeds often have a temperature range within which they will germinate, and they will not do so above or below this range.
this is interesting stuff, wouldn't have thought it could work, now I'll have to try it too, thank you!
I planted one about 30 years ago that I found on the beach, which had germinated. Now it is doing well in the garden, and is about 8m tall. Unfortunately we moved from there a long time ago, though now you can see it from the road. There are ones in the city that are over a century old and which are doing fine and bearing fruit regularly.
