      I notice you have added instructions to start Plantago species in spring in cool soils. I am in southern California, and it sounds like these are not something I could expect to start in July or August. Would you expect any of these Plantagos to start successfully in southern California in July or August?

      Hello Kendra, Yes, this could be done by choosing a cool, shady and moist location. They might come up right away, they really aren’t that hard to start, or t is quite possible that the seeds would remain dormant and germinate in the winter.
