|Germination||The seeds need 6 weeks of cold stratification at 40°F, prior to planting. Cover seeds lightly by 1/4" soil. Germination normally occurs in about 21-28 days at 70-75°F, but may take up to 3 months. If sown early it will flower the same year, but peak at the 3rd year.|
|Scarification / Stratification|| This will break their dormancy. It creates a cold and moist environment for the seeds. Mixed in seeds with slightly moistened vermiculite or peat, only damp in a ziplock bag. Close zip bag shut and store it in the salad crisper compartment of your refrigerator. If any seeds begin to sprout during the cold stratification, simply remove the seed and plant.
