martagon hybrids

Campanula UK Z8March 1, 2013

As the hybrid martagon bulbs are beyond the scope of my wallet, I bought seeds. I think they could do with a certain amount of stratifying and am wondering whether to sow now or wait till November and overwinter them outside. Although winter is not over in the UK (last frost dates can be as late as the end of May). Still expensive so would rather not throw caution to the winds and just go for it if success is unlikely.

Wow, I did a little research on the web and yes those bulbs are expensive! I ran across a pretty good page about how to grow Martagon and Oriental lilies from seed (see link below). Check it out and maybe it will be helpful.

Martagon hybrid is a great choice for those shady spots in our garden. It is normally planted in warmer climates and in a colder climate, should be provided with mulch.
