Timely and interesting article: Query: I moved into a new (for me) home a year ago June, and was thrilled to find a patch of 6 to 7 foot tall crocosmia in the conrer of a small garden. Bright scarlet flowers;happy hummingbirds. I collected some seeds this year but rearranged some of the corms last fall and know that that is the way they propogate. Am not a knowlegeable gardener and live in a community where the rabbits and deer wander through the gardens and nearby golf course at will. Crocosmia doesn't attract them and so is an ideal plant. So my query is: can I plant the seeds in another corner? Do they have to be started indoors? I saw in a chart on this site that starting with seed "wasn't worth the bother" ...true?
