January - Cultivating a tapestry of perennials to weave into the canvas of your freshly designed garden, crafted especially for you by our Landscape Designer Padraic

In January, you can start seeds indoors for various plants. Here's a list along with basic guidelines:

  • Coneflower (Echinacea): Start indoors 8-12 weeks before the last expected frost. Echinacea produces beautiful daisy-like flowers and is known for its medicinal properties.

  • Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia): Begin seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost. These vibrant yellow flowers attract pollinators.

  • Lupine (Lupinus): Start seeds indoors in early winter. Lupines have tall spikes of pea-like flowers and come in various colors.

  • Delphinium (Delphinium spp.): Begin seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Delphiniums offer stunning, tall spires of flowers.

  • Salvia (Sage): Start sage seeds indoors for aromatic foliage and spikes of flowers in various hues.

  • Achillea (Yarrow): Begin seeds indoors for feathery foliage and flattened flower heads in a range of colors.

How to Start Seeds Indoors:

1. Containers: Use seed trays, peat pots, or small containers with drainage holes.

2. Seed Starting Mix: Use a sterile seed-starting mix to prevent diseases.

3. Sowing: Plant seeds at the recommended depth on the seed packet.

4. Moisture: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.

5. Light: Place seed trays in a bright location. Consider using grow lights if natural light is insufficient.

6. Temperature: Maintain appropriate temperatures for each plant. A consistent, warm environment is crucial for germination.

7. Transplanting: Once seedlings have a few true leaves, transplant them into larger pots. Harden off seedlings before transplanting outdoors.

Remember to provide consistent moisture, proper light, and appropriate temperatures during the germination and seedling stages. Patience is key when growing perennials from seed, as they may take longer to establish and bloom compared to annuals.
