#0016 Aconitum napellus:
(Input number of packets into checkbox -- $1.00 per packet)
[20 seeds per packet]
Germination: Difficult. [Aconitum seeds are said to have a short viability life.]
Sow immediately if seeds received in fall, by winter sowing.

If receiving seeds in winter, sow using good seed starting mix in a small container, covering seeds with mix; water thoroughly to moisten mix. Place container inside baggie to retain moisture. Place container in location at 64-71°F for 3 weeks; then move container to the freezer for 5 weeks; then to a location at 53-60°F for germination. (Remove baggie when germination begins.) This latter germination method could be timed so as to place the container in an outdoor sheltered/shaded location in early spring for germination. Germination may be erratic.
