My 5 yr old and I spend a lot of time outdoors in our garden oasis. I love flowers, cottage garden style! #GTseedfairy 💕USDA Zone 8b; Sunset Zone 7

Sow the seeds about a quarter inch deep in a seed tray filled with seed compost - you can do this now, mid to late autumn is the usual time. Mist water so as not to disturb the seeds, and place the tray in a brightly lit spot. Keep the tray at a temperature of 60-70 deg F over winter, and keep it damp but not sodden - they should germinate within 2-4 weeks.

Sow your crocosmia seeds in late winter in indoor seed trays. Place a 2-inch layer of seed starting soil in the tray. Plant the seeds 1/4-inch deep, and spray with a mister after planting to provide moisture without disturbing the seeds.

Transplant your crocosmia seedlings in late spring when they have 4 to 6 sets of true leaves.

Seed should be started around February so the plants have time to grow and develop at least four sets of true leaves before they are transplanted. #sowindoors February 15th

Older patches of crocosmia should be dug up every three to four years and divided, then replanted. This will ensure bigger, brighter blooms the following season. Additionally, since the plants have seeded by fall, the old plants can be completely removed, allowing the new seedlings to take over. It may take a few seasons for the new baby plants to flower.
