Alchemilla mollis (Lady’s Mantle) [15 Seeds]

(1 customer review)


Germination Information: I recommend these only for experienced seed-sowers, because they are tiny and require careful handling, and because they may require some experimentation. One approach is to plant the seeds in a pot in fall to midwinter, surface-sown or just barely covered with growing medium. Some sources suggest that a short warm period before chilling is helpful, so consider keeping the pot in a warm spot for about 2 weeks before setting it outdoors. The seeds will germinate when conditions are right in spring.

It is also possible that these seeds could germinate (though perhaps at a less than optimal rate) if you start them in warm, moist, bright conditions. They may take several weeks, however, so be patient. If no seedlings appear after about 4 weeks, then try giving the pot an artificial chilling period of about a month.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

A classic choice for cottage-style gardens, lady’s mantle (Alchemilla mollis) grows in dense mounds of soft, velvety green, scalloped-edged leaves. In late spring or early summer through midsummer, the clumps are topped with clouds of tiny, chartreuse flowers–so beautiful with blues and purples, especially. The plants tend to look tidier if you shear them back to a few inches above the ground in late summer, so they can produce a new flush of leaves, but if you let the seeds form, they may self-sow. Full sun (particularly if the soil doesn’t dry out too much) to partial shade. Perennial; Zones 4 to 7 or 8.

2021-collected seeds sold out. I hope to collect again in late summer 2022. At least 15 seeds.
