How to plant Milkweed

seeds and plant plugs

Have you received seeds from Mission Monarch?

 - During the spring & summer, plant the seeds in a sunny place only 1/8 inch down, give them plenty of water the first few weeks, they should sprout in about 20 days. The second year they will bloom with flowers that will self seed, so give them room to spread out!

 - Did you get your seeds in fall or winter? Store you seeds in the fridge, after the frost,  plant your seeds in sunny place only 1/8 inch down, they will sprout in the spring. Or wait until early spring to plant your seeds for the best results.

Have you received a plant plug from Mission Monarch?

 - During the spring and summer, plant it immediately in a nice sunny place and give it plenty of water.

 - During winter and fall, initially protect it from frost.  Plant in the spring. The second year they will bloom with flowers that will self seed, so give them room to spread out!
