Knautia macedonica (Crimson Scabious) [10 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they may require some patience. The easiest approach is to surface-sow (do not cover) the seeds in fall to late winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can germinate when conditions are right in spring.

If you sow after February, consider giving the pot an artificial chilling period of about a month.

It is possible that these seeds could germinate if you sow them in warm, moist, bright conditions. But if you try that and no seedlings appear within 3 weeks or so, then try the artificial-chilling approach above before moving them back to warmth and light.

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