The Q&A Archives: Butterfly seed garden

Question: How long should I wait before contacting you concerning the butterfly garden seeds erupting. Seems like nothing is happening so far, and it has been about 7-9 days.

Answer: As a rule of thumb, annual seeds started properly may germinate in a range of times, from three days to three weeks, depending on the ambient temperature and how deeply they are planted. Perennial seeds may tend to take a bit longer. If they are planted outdoors, germination can also depend on weather conditions as well as soil temperature and moisture levels. If you have concerns about the seeds, you might wish to contact Burpee customer service directly at 1-800-333-5808. Good luck with your butterfly garden!
