How to Plant DELPHINIUM Seeds
Sow seeds in cell packs or flats, press into soil and fully cover. Darkness aids germination. Kept at 55° F., germination is in 14-35 days.
Comments: Germination rate can be improved (if prior to sowing) the seeds are placed in a ziplock bag with a small amount of moist growing media (or a moist paper towel) and placed into the refrigerator for 2 weeks.
