Hi Jim,
I assume you're going to start your seeds indoors, under lights, and transplant to the garden later? Keep in mind that E. angustifolia usually has a lower germination rate and grows slower than other species of Asteraceae, such as E. purpurea. They also prefer a longer cold, stratification period (maybe 8 or 10 weeks).

Hope this helps,

rhinelander, WI(Zone 4a)

thank you -- will see what happens -- this is the more medicinal one :)
