Sow Eupatorium seeds in good quality compost or seed raising mix at any time. Lightly cover with compost or grit to their own depth. Place in a propagator or cover with a plastic lid in a warm place. We recommend germinating at 15-20 degrees C. keep moist at all times, but do not saturate. However we sow most seeds in an unheated polyhouse and wait for natural germination as many seeds have built in dormancy mechanisms, and often wait for spring before emerging regardless of when they are sown. Pot on seedlings to harden off and mature before finally planting out in the garden.
