The Q&A Archives: snapdragons

Question: I sent a question about snapdragons 2 DAYS AGO. Should they be planted now in So CA or is this towards the end of the season?

Answer: Sorry you didn't receive a reply to your original question. Sometimes things get lost in cyberspace and sometimes email programs block our responses. Hope this replay makes it safely to your inbox! Snapdragons thrive in the cooler temperatures and should be planted in late spring. You can sow them in August for fall blooms. They do best in sunny locations with rich, well-drained soil. Plants will not flourish where temperatures are high for extended periods of time but will tolerate some frost. If you sow them in August and they bloom this fall, they should self-sow in the garden and you'll have new plants sprouting up next spring. Enjoy!
