Chelidonium Seed can be sown at any time into a good quality compost or seed raising mix. Cover the seed with fine grit or fine river sand to approximately their own depth. Natural germination will occur if kept in an unheated poly house or covered seed raising tray. Many seeds wait for spring before emerging regardless of when they are sown so please give them a full season of growth before discarding. Germination can be quicker if kept at 15-20 Degrees C. Keep moist, but not saturated at all times.
