Cultivation details
An easily grown plant, preferring a good loamy soil[1]. According to one report, this species is not cold-hardy in temperate zones[200], though a large healthy tree (planted in 1934?) was seen growing at Kew in 1989[K].
Seed - sow February in a greenhouse. Variable germination rates[78]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Give the plants some protection from the cold for their first winter outdoors. Cuttings of half-ripe wood (preferably forced in a greenhouse), 5 - 8cm with a heel, June to August in a warm greenhouse. Fair to good percentage[78].

We've got two older trees of that species in our botanical garden here in Leipzig, Germany (Zone 7). Despite having had a rather cold winter this year with the ground frozen up to 50 cm they didn't show any signs of frost damages (contrary to our native ashes). So by this I'd say they probably grow fine from Zone 6 onwards in continental climates. If there are hardiness issues, then they could be related to the cool maritime climate in the UK.
