All soils and Ph, well drained, moist
How to Grow:
Sow early in a cold frame or indoors and only just cover the seed. Seed may be placed in damp sand and refrigerated for 60 days to increase germination speed. Keep soil moist by covering with plastic wrap. Germination may take as long as 3 months, although we have much faster germination experience here at the farm. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and plant them out into their permanent positions in the summer. Division in spring or autumn. Very easy, the clumps can be replanted direct into their permanent positions.
How to Save Joe Pye Weed Seed:
Late in the year, harvest the browned seed heads and finish drying in a protected, breezeless spot to prevent the small seeds from dislodging and blowing away. When completely dry, shake seed from heads and store in a cool, dry spot
