how to grow fame acanthus, and texas star hibiscus
I direct sowed Texas star hibiscus last fall. They did not come up. I sowed them in pots in the house they did not come up. Please help me figure out what this seeds wants. Don't say winter sow. I tried that with various kinds of seeds (herbs and tomatillos mostly) none came up. Actually a few did, but on a warm winter day, they cooked in the stupid pop bottle green house. I guess winter sow is not a great idea in texas! (my opinion so don't jump all over me)
When should these seeds be direct sown, and how much water does the seed need to germinate?
I planted the flame acanthus in the pots too, none came up. I also direct sowed one in the rain garden (a few weeks ago?). Not up yet. help!
could be all this rain making the seed either not come up or rot.
