Sweet autumn from seed

piksi_hk(9)November 5, 2008

I just picked s bagful of seeds from my Sweet Autumn; this year was a first with her covered with blooms.

How long does it take for the seeds to germinate? Is Sweet Autumn one of the easier ones to germinate?

I've been reading some of the posts regarding the baggie method versus the regular method, so I'll try both ways and see which one does better.

I have never tried to germinate SAC because it reseeds all by itself for me--so much so that this year I cut the plant back by half after the blooming stopped to remove all the seeds before they reached maturity Don't know if you have ever tried winter sowing it in containers you leave outside but that would be the easiest way to start it based on the way it reseeds by itself in my garden.
