Question: How can I grow American bittersweet? Can it be started from seed, or does it need to be started as a plant?

Answer: American bittersweet is a deciduous, twining climber grown for its attractive berries. It can be propagated by seed in the autumn or spring or by soft-wood cuttings in the summer. You’ll have to check with plant and seed suppliers regarding its availability. Plants should not be harvested from the wild because they are becoming scarce.
