    Comments about American Meadows Bee Balm Seeds:

    I cold stratified these by sowing the seeds in a milk jug filled with planting medium and then placed the jug outside around February 2015. The seeds are very small and many of them germinated. I potted up the 5 strongest seedlings (some sprouted and fizzled out but that's life!) and they are doing great- about 8 inches tall now. I think they're ready to go into my butterfly garden as a complement to the scarlet-colored bee balm I already have.

      I planted the seeds when they arrived in the spring and these babies grew fast. They were great for cut flowers. I planted these in full sun and near the border of my driveway. Very hardy with little water.

            These seeds germinated just fine, and the seedlings are currently happily transplanted outside.
