How should I plant scabiosa seeds? I have a packet from last year. I followed the directions on the back of the packet, but none of the seeds germinated. Please help! I love the color and form of the flowers and would really love to have this perennial in my garden.

As long as you stored your leftover seeds in an airtight container in a cool, dark location, the seeds should sprout for you. Sow outdoors after your last frost, or indoors 6-8 weeks before planting out. Sow seeds 1/16" deep in moistened seed starting mix. Place pots or trays in a warm area, such as on top of the refrigerator or near a waterheater. Seeds should germinate in 10-15 days when kept at 70F - 75F degrees.
