The seeds of the tall cypress, Cupressus sempervirens can be harvested by collecting closed cones and placing them in a box on the windowsill. In a few weeks the cones dry and open and shed the seeds. All you do is wait for them to drop out and shake the box if you want to.

You will need to cold stratify the seeds for 3 weeks before planting in a well drained medium
