Antirrhinum majus Seed Propagation
Indoors: Store seeds in fridge for a week before sowing or place freshly sown container, or flat in cool 41-47F temps for a week, then position to maintain 70F soil temps. Grown as annual, start seeds 8-10 weeks early, before last expected frost date. Surface sow to flats of moist seedling media 1/2″ apart February to March. Lightly press in to firm. No cover as these seeds require light to germinate. Use prop case or humidity dome & maintain 70F soil temperature for germination 10-20 days. Transplant seedlings as they appear & grow on at 50F. Tips can be pinched at 4″ tall to promote branching. Harden off before transplanting in permanent position after risk of Spring frosts have passed
Outdoors: Surface sow thinly to prepared seed bed early Spring, after danger of Spring frosts have passed. Keep moist & weed free. Thin or transplant to 6″ apart once 2-3 sets of true leaves develope. Additionally sow in the Fall for early Spring blooms in zones 7-10
