Cold Stratification or Direct Sowing: Recommended. (See Winter Jug Method )
Direct sow seeds in fall and allow seeds to naturally cold stratify. When starting seeds indoors, sow finely and barely cover seeds with soil. I recommend sowing these seeds, direct in Fall on a prepared seedbed or garden container, water well, and protect from winter weather with a fabric fleece if some seeds germinate early. Also known as cold stratification and can be completed anytime of the year by placing seed packs in a cool drawer of a refrigerator for 4-12 weeks to break seed dormancy.
1) Sow direct in a prepared weed-free seedbed
2) Cold frame sheltered location in small pots outdoors
3) Under lights indoor grow room
4) Bright windowsill with drip tray and propagator cover

Native plants maintain balance and provide habitat and eco-systems for resident and migratory wildlife. Due to many years of ecological destruction, development and toxic pollution many native wild flowers, and wildlife are under-threat of extinction.
We all have an important role to play, no matter how small your garden or balcony a few plant pots filled with natives instead of alien ornamentals of genetic hybrids that offer very little to no benefit to feeding insects and birds.
Time to make a small difference on a global scale and encourage our neighbors friends and families to sow a patchwork quilt of native wildflowers like a blanket to protect our sacred planet!
