Help, I grew some Bells of Ireland from seed and dont know where to transplant them or their water requirements. I live in San Antonio. Anyone have success with this plant? Thanks

I have no experience with these but reading about them on Dave's Garden (Garden Web rejected the link)
I notice the people who have success are in cooler zones. If I had your seedlings I put them in morning sun only or dappled shade and keep them well watered.

google: " bells of Ireland dave's "
and you'll see the link.

I'm a good bit south of you,
Our climate & soil is quite different than yours.
But for what it's worth,
I grew them once.
I planted the seed right into the ground in Oct.
(I honestly don't remember how/where I learned to plant them in the fall)
They did really well.
I dried & saved the 'bells',
They lasted a very long time.

But you have the little seedlings now.
So I think, too, that morning sun
Would be the best bet.

Hope they do well for you!
They are really pretty.
