How to Plant Agastache Seeds
Sow indoors in mid February to mid March for transplanting in May or you can direct sow in the Autumn. Soil temperature should be 55°F
Just cover the seeds, and keep moist in a sterile seed starting mix. When no risk of frost is left, transplant outdoors to containers or in the garden.
Grow in well drained, fairly rich soil in full sun. Agastache can tolerate light shade, but will not perform as well. Maintain vigorous plants by dividing in the fall. Plants grown from seed will take two years to bloom.
