As we get to the end of the blooming season for many perennials, I’ve been reading up on seed saving. I was excited to see Mr. BrownThumb’s post about direct sowing entire seedheads for purple coneflowers.
I’ll definitely be trying it this year! I have a lot of coneflowers and it will be very easy to plant the entire heads rather than extracting all the seeds. Since I am not counting on having a certain rate of return, it’ll be a low-risk experiment to see how they do.
