  1. Question

    Eimi (verified owner)

    If I get seeds now but wait until fall (Sept or Oct) to start them, is that too late? I’m in central TX, and it’s getting hot already, so not ideal to start aconite now. But I want to make sure I have seeds before they sell out… Thank you!

      Hello Eimi,
      Thanks for writing. It will not be too late. These seeds will soon sell out and I encourage you to get them now, keep them in a sealed jar in the fridge and plant them in the fall for germ in the spring. Richo

    So this is probably not the time to buy the seeds if sowing shouldn’t take place until summer/fall? (I’m in zone 9 btw)

      Hi Erica! I would get them right away if interested. This is fresh seed that won’t be any fresher come summer, and will likely be sold out by then. Richo
