Tip for Planting Delphinium Seeds in Fall and More


If you're crazy for delphiniums the way I am, you'll want to know every way possible to inexpensively grow them. I've been experimenting for years and have gathered all my best tips here: http://www.empressofdirt.net/delphiniums/
Delphiniums are hardy in zones 3 to 7.
TIP #1
How To Start Perennial Seeds Outdoors In The Fall
-Place a bottomless 6″ (or larger) pot in the ground, leaving 1″ above the surface.
-Fill the pot with garden soil.
-Pour a kettle of boiling water over the soil to kill off any existing seeds in the soil.
-When the soil is cool, plant the seeds to depth indicated on seed package.
-Mark the spot with plant labels.
-The seeds will germinate in the spring. Transplant as desired.
There's lots more seed starting and propogation ideas on the blog.
