We established that the climatic conditions of the Precarpathian region are favourable forNigella sativa L. growing by seeds and seedlings. We used in our study the conventional methods of plants propagation by seeds and seedlings in both laboratory and field conditions. The research results indicate that the field germination of Nigella sativa L.seeds (18-21%) is less than germination in laboratory (38-42%) conditions. This is due to the low germination energy of these seeds (12-15%). We discovered that the temperature from 5 to 8 °C is the best one for Nigella sativa L. seeds early spring sowing. We observed the mass seed germination at a temperature of 12-18 °C and soil moisture of 60%. The plants grew well and resulted in a good yield. The seedlings of Nigella sativa L. planted in the mid-April showed the best rooting (75%), blossoming and forming of valuable seeds.
