USA Restriction: Unfortunately these seeds are not permitted in the USA. If we shipped they could be seized by the border, and possible fines could be imposed (they consider the buyer to be importer). Please do not order if you live in USA. Any US orders for this item will be refunded, minus a 5.00 processing fee. Thank you for your understanding. All other regions can safely order these seeds!
Germination: As with many perennial seeds, these seeds can benefit from a period of moist cold to help them break dormancy. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:
Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container in a cold area (but not freezing, perhaps a refrigerator) for 4-6 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks after the warming period.
