The experiment was conducted to examine the effect of seed storage and seed treatments on seedling growth of Garcinia gummi-gutta at College of forestry, Ponnampet in split plot design in that seed storage selected as main plot and seed treatment as sub plot. In the present study seed stored up to 0, 30, 60, 90 days respectively with the eight different seed treatments. In each treatment 30 seeds were used per replication. The study indicated that seed stored up to 6o days has significant effect on growth. Results indicates that seed treated with mechanical scarification of seed coat showed best growth while seed treated with hydrogen peroxide and hot water treatment showed less growth. The overall result concluded that seed stored up to 60 days and seed treated with mechanical scarification of seed coat found best for the seedling growth of Garcinia gummi-gutta.
