Germinating Periennial Lupines

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

This will be my first attempt on germinating these lovely flowers seeds. So I use the one week cool stratification method. I wrapped them in moist paper towel, then put them in the fridge last Saturday. Hopefully I can put these seeds in peat moss pots by this coming weekend.

Looking forward to spring.

I put some nicked lupine seeds in a wet paper towel on Monday and they broke through the seed casing today (Wednesday). I put them in small plant cells with seed starting mix this evening and hope they will pop through the mix in the next few days.

Hummm, I potted the cold stratified seeds into peat pots, but forgot to nick them. Should they germinate, I'll post the result. It's still under danger of last frost here in my region. The seeds tray is still indoor, under florescent light.

Deb, here goes! About 50% of mine germinated within a week time. How is yours going so far? I was told that these do not tolerate roots disturbances. So I'll plant these pots and all when weather is warm enough.
