Abstract: A greenhouse experiment was conducted to study the effects of the proper temperature treatment, the changing temperature treatment, the laser treatment, the ultrasonic treatment, the H2O2 treatment,the PEG treatment on the germination of Elacagnus mollis Diels. Then germination rate, germination force,germination index,root length,bud length,plantheigh,stalkwidth and chlorophylls content were determined.The results showed that the seeds which were in changing temperature pretreatment, in the PEG pretreatment can effectively relieve the influence of inhibitor on the seed sprouts, therefore, these way is effective to break the seed dormancy and enhance the sprouting rate.

Key words: Elacagnus mollis, seeds, pretreatment, seedling growth
