How to Grow Milkweed Seeds:

  1. Stratification: Milkweed seeds benefit from a cold stratification process to improve germination rates. Place seeds in a moistened paper towel, fold, and seal in a plastic bag. Refrigerate for 30 days before planting.

  2. Planting: Sow stratified seeds in early spring or fall directly in the garden or pots. Space seeds 1/4 inch deep and 18-24 inches apart, ensuring they receive adequate sunlight.

  3. Germination: Maintain moist soil conditions and expect seedlings to emerge within 10-20 days. Thin out seedlings if necessary to avoid overcrowding.

  4. Care: Once established, Milkweed plants are generally low maintenance. Water regularly during the first year, then reduce as they become more drought-tolerant. Avoid using pesticides, as they can harm the Monarch butterflies you're trying to support.
