#174: Seed Talk: Cool Flowers Direct Seeding FAQs, Part 1

by | Sep 8, 2022

Interested in growing larkspur, bachelor buttons, or bells of Ireland? Did you know that some of spring’s most coveted flowers – including these beauties – actually prefer to be sown directly outdoors rather than started indoors as transplants? Join Lisa Mason Ziegler and Layne Angelo as they cover some of the most frequently asked questions about sowing seeds directly in the garden. They discuss some of the advantages and challenges when direct seeding, tips and tricks for sowing this group of plants in fall and very early spring, succession-planting bupleurum, and more. Listen to the podcast and prepare to sow some of your Cool Flowers seeds directly into the garden!

The video version of Lisa and Layne’s conversation featuring a slideshow of the questions discussed will be posted to our YouTube channel. If there is a question or topic you would like to hear discussed on a future episode of “Seed Talk”, please fill out the form linked below. We would love to hear your suggestions!
