The Q&A Archives: Butterfly Blue Scabiosa

Question: I was wondering, I hate buying ready grown plants as it takes the fun out of growing. I have become captivated with butterfly blue Scabiosa. I was wondering if you could suggest any places where I could buy these seeds to start growing them for next spring.

Thank You

Answer: Scabiosa seeds are available from Thompson & Morgan, PO Box 1308, Jackson, NJ 08527-0308. The seeds will take 14-21 days to germinate in soil temperatures of 60F-70F. Start your seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before your last predicted frost, and transplant them to your garden when the soil warms in early spring.
