Answer: These plants will often self sow in the garden if the faded blooms are left on the plant in the fall. Then you can transplant the seedlings that appear the following spring. So, planting the seeds where you would like plants to be should work. Keep in mind however that in the uncontrolled conditions of nature many of the seeds do not germinate for a variety of reasons such as birds and mice eating them, washing away in heavy rains, and so on. So be sure to plant many extra seeds. You might also consider waiting until early spring to plant them outside. If you do that, you should chill them in a closed container with barely damp peat moss or vermiculite or sand in the refrigerator to provide a cold stratification period that mimics winter. Another way to increase your plants is by dividing them in the spring. Good luck with your project!
