Winter Sowing Lantana
I'm trying winter sowing, (outside), for the first time this year. I had already started eleven containers including:
1- Foxglove, Candy Mountain
2 & 3- English Poppy
4- Foxglove Excelsior Mix
5- Blanketflower Gaillardia Aristata
6- Delphinium, Blue Bird
7- Delphinium, pacific Giants, Mixed color
8- Milkweed, Rose, Asclepias incarnata
10 & 11- Cosmos
Yesterday, I added a few more containers to that list and will try to continue adding others over the next several weeks.
12- Bellflower, Campanula carpatica -Blue
13- Lantana (This is just an experiment since I had plenty of seed. Considering this is zone 5, I doubt it will be successful.)
15- Daisy Garden wildflower mix, (Black-eyed Susan, Blanket flower, Coreopsis, Cosmos, Shasta Daisy, Tricolor Chrysanthemum)
I also soaked and sowed lantana seeds, for growing inside under the grow lights. I've read mixed reviews about the ease, or rather difficulty, of propagating lantana from seed. I hope at least one method is successful.
