Juncus effusus (Smooth Rush) [50 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these only for gardeners who have experience with sowing seeds that require a natural or artificial chilling period to germinate.

Ideally, surface-sow these dust-like seeds in a pot in early fall and set them outdoors; they should germinate when conditions are right in spring. If you sow after early fall, getting germination can more more challenging and may require a warm period (about 1 month) followed by an artificial chilling period of about 2 months, then cool to moderate temperatures.

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

Please read the description as well before ordering.
