wintersowing butterfly seed
Has anybody had any luck wintersowing Ascleplas(Gay butterflies) butterfly weed in the milk jugs?
I seem to remember mine didn't make it last year or year before. I don't know where I found these instructions from but it says to sow seeds in peat pots or cell packs, press into soil but DO NOT COVER. Needs light to germinate..Keep at 70 degrees F. germination occurs within 4 weeks.. If not, put container inside a ziplock bag and refrigerate fro 4 weeks. Return to 70 degrees F to germinate. Transplant into the garden 12-18 inc. apart. This sounds like it's instructions for growing "Under lights" I thought wintersowing took care of all this..confusing for me. I only have 2 pkt. of 20 each seeds..
