Columbine Bee introduces how to plant

Plant Columbine Seeds: Sow columbine seeds in cell packs or flats, press into soil, do not cover. Need light to germinate. Kept at 65-70° F., germination is in 21-28 days. Can direct sow columbine seeds into prepared seed beds in groups of 3 to 4 seeds, spaced 6-18 in. apart. Thin seedlings to the strongest plant.
