Convallaria majalis Lily of the Valley is a woodland plant, much valued for its fragrant summer flowers. Its low, spreading habit also makes it ideal for growing as a ground cover plant. Convallaria thrives in a moist, shaded spot, and gradually spreads to form dense clumps of lush, green foliage.
Sow Convallaria majalis Lily of the Valley seeds immediately when you receive them, at any time of the year. They depend on having several months, sometimes up to a year in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner and do not discard. Do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism causing them to enter even deeper dormancy.
