Direct sow in early spring. Seeds will not germinate well if soil is above 13 degrees Celsius. Pre-chilling seed in a damp paper towel at 2˚C for 7-14 days will improve germination. Sow seeds .6 cm deep and cover with soil as darkness is necessary for germination. Larkspurs don’t like transplanting, so plant them out in their final home where they will re-seed and always be there to cheer you up. Blooms ‘til (even past) frost with some deadheading. Annual
