Milkweed seeds

mallory13July 31, 2014

Are these seeds actually plantable!? I have 5 more seed pods that i have on my plants, today is the first time ive seen this... If they are plantable seeds, what time of year can i plant them???

Yes! Plant them, they are fresh and should come up within 7 days. Good luck :)

Should native milkweed such as Purple MW and Butterfly Weed also be surface sown?
