Planting Hosta Seeds

It's that time of year when I finally have time to plant my hosta seeds.  I collecting them in fall, and kept them in paper envelopes until now.  Just a note that hosta seeds do not come true from seed.  So they will not look like the parent plant (unless it's ventricosa).

I then prepare my planters.  It's best to use a soil less potting mixture, as soil can contain fungus and bacteria.  I like the planters at Menards like come with the coir mixture you add water to.  It's been successful for me for a few years.

I then sprinkle the hosta seeds on top of potting mixture and gently push them into the soil or add a very small amount of soil on top of the seeds.  

I then cover them with the plastic dome (you can also use plastic wrap or bags when getting the seeds started).  

The seeds do not need light to germinate, so I just make sure to put them somewhere warm until they start to germinate.  I make sure they are damp (not wet) during this time.  Once they start to germinate I put them under grow lights (you can just use fluorescent bulbs).
These three trays are ready to be put somewhere warm in the house.
