Hahahahaaha, luv ya Mary!!!!
Why don't you do a little bit of everything..
**Not being funny**
Usually the seeds
fall to the ground after the flowers
are done and dried.. *August(ish)*
and mine seem to start then at some time..
*not that I ever see them start, but theyr'e beautiful by spingtime...
But shake some now, plant
some in the fall..
***Do two or three area's, one might take,
where the other two won't or vice~versa***
and do some in pots, and leave them for winter,
maybe protect them by a base of a plant
, or shredded leaves, for a little winter protection
against the winters' wind..
***I did that with some columbine seeds
got a bunch of columbines now, and they're
all in 2" pots, just like I would have
gotten them in the nursery...***
And save some for the freezer and plant
the regular way it says on the package...
Then, figure out, which way was easiest for you,
and which got the best results with the easiest work????seed
will surprise you!!!!
But you have to give us an update if you do!!!!
We love to hear about all the experiments,
whether they turn out good or bad, that's how
we all learn....
