SOWING TIPS:

I recommend sowing these seeds, direct on a prepared seedbed or garden container, water well, and be patient, some seeds will germinate without cold treatment others will need winter temperatures to break dormancy.

1) Sow direct in a prepared seedbed in Fall or Early Spring
2) Sow garden seeds fall or Spring in small pots keep protected in a cold frame sheltered location outdoors
3) Under lights sow anytime but consider where you grow them until they can go outdoors
4) Starting seeds on a bright windowsill with in-direct sunshine can work well for germinating garden seeds in early spring.

I like to grow 1/2 of my seeds in pots this way you can break dormancy, simply by moving the pots around and most seeds germinate in batches, care must be taken when picking out to avoid disturbing emerging seedlings.

Pot young plants on until large enough to plant out, this cottage garden plant mix prefers poor soil in full sun.

Alternatively use the following techniques to improve germination

MOIST STRATIFICATION will help seed germination~ to do so, place seeds in moist sand or peat in the refrigerator for about 6 weeks prior to planting. Keep the medium and seeds in a sealed ziplock baggie to hold in moisture. Remove them after the stratification period, and plant them in the seed mix or.

HOT WATER SCARIFYING may be tricky with these fine seeds can be used to speed up the germination process, simply drop the seeds into pre-boiled water that has chilled for 30 seconds allow them to soak for 24hrs before sowing.

Keep soil moist, not wet. At the end of the cold stratification, keep pots covered and place them in a warm, sunny location. Remove zip-lock bag as seedlings appear.

Easy to grow sow seed and inert mixer, direct where you would like them to flower, in Fall or Early Spring, or start in small pots on a window sill several weeks before the last frost in your area.
