      The years roll on and on, and even tiny fishes grow in time to great salmon. If wishes were fishes we’d all throw nets–or plant seeds, as it were.

      Hi Chris,
      We’re going to have thousands of these to sell as plants. Please stay tuned, they are so slow going, I’m not going to list them until 2021.

      Hi Richo,

      please put me up for a batch as well – shipping to Germany if possible. It`s pretty much impossible to get them here.

      Hi Vince,
      I would love to send you seeds but new EU standards on seed shipments make this impossible. If you know someone in England, you can have the seeds sent there, as they are no longer in the EU.

    I never had success germinating this species with spring sowing, and just blamed it on the short springtimes typical of the SE USA. I then decided to give it one last try, which I did by hydrating seeds for 24hr in a 300 ppm solution of gibberellic acid, then keeping refrigerated in moist sand in a clear plastic container. That did the trick, with the first seed sprouting in ~45 days. Seeds produce a lengthy taproot quickly, so they must be checked often if using this method.

      I planted Lomatium in 2001in several locations. My best results are in a raised bed on a gently southern slope in sandy soil. I planted the seed in the fall. Got reasonable germination in the spring. The mature plants will reseed themselves, but the taproot makes the seedlings almost unmovable. Plant in a permanent location.The plants have survived wet summers, deep snows, rainy winters, and -40º temperatures. With excellent drainage, the plants are extremely hardy.
