Lobelia siphilitica (Great Blue Lobelia) [50 Seeds]

$3.95

Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, partly because they are very tiny and partly because they may require some patience. The easiest approach is to surface-sow the seeds in fall to late winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.

If you sow after February, set the pot in a plastic bag in your refrigerator for about 2 months before moving it to a warm, bright place for germination. (Remove the bag if the pot will be exposed to any direct sun.)

It is possible that these seeds could germinate when sown in pots in warm conditions, either indoors or outside. If you don’t see any signs of sprouting after about 3 weeks, then give the pots a chilling period as described above.
