We recommend planting milkweed seeds in Spring or Early Summer, before the growth of the first season’s growth. We prefer to plant our seedlings within 2 weeks after they have emerged from their cocoons (egg cases). 3-4 weeks is also an excellent time to sow your seeds. This will give you plenty of time for them to establish themselves before first frost and provide a good start for next year’s supply of insects which are essential in order for new plants to survive. Once established on new soil, it can take up to two years before these perennial flowers bloom again.
