Good question, I got some of the same seeds this week (ie erythronium) so I soaked them and planted them in outdoor containers. If they come up great, if not I hope they will do so the following spring.  We have warm weather by our standards right now but there is still more than a month where below freezing temps are possible and it should be rather cool till the end of April or so.

Subject: [pbs] SRGC Seed-To Plant or Not To Plant

My Scottish Rock Garden Club Seed finally arrived today.  Maybe APHIS has some sort of requirement that it has to sit on someone’s desk for at least two weeks before they send it on because it took over a month.  So now the question is should I plant my seed of bulbous plants now or hold it until fall.  We’re still expected to have some nights with temperatures at or just below freezing but the seed won’t get the kind of chill it would get if I planted it in the fall.  So here’s the bulbous loot I received:///TecophiliaNarcissus/ sp.Erythronium montanumTrillium rivaleTrillium hibbersonii (hope springs eternal)Scilla madeirensesAphelion montevidenseSo what is the wisdom of the PBS list on late winter seed sowing?Jan Jeddeloh, Portland, Oregon, USA, more or less zone 8_______________________________________________pbs mailing listpbs@lists.pacificbulbsociety.net…
