    With light dependent germinator. Does this mean I will have a hard time growing it in Southern California? Thanks!

      Hi Emily,
      Not really, you just have to have the right conditions for a couple of weeks and then… germination.

      Hi Richo, I work in a historic garden in the Piedmont NC. We have never had luck in the past but I think the Alchemilla was getting too much heat and sun from our hot climate. Do you think I could try it again in partial shade in a wetter spot? I think it’s worth a try. Any advice would be great!

      Hi Jenna, People do sometimes have trouble with Lady’s Mantle. I think your own advice is best–choose moist shade. My experience this year was: planted seed in February, transplanted seedlings to full sun sandy soil in April, gave plenty of room to each plant and weeded and cultivated around them scrupulously, and now they are very large and in full flower in June. We’re very hot and dry here, I water about every 3 days. Richo
