|When larkspur is seeded outdoors it is usually strewn over the ground in very early spring in the area where it is wanted to grow and not covered because the freeze thaw cycle will bury it sufficiently for germination; some seed packets will suggest it be planted only an eighth of an inch deep. However, the seeds do not require light in the sense that they must not be covered as some seeds do.
