Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora 'Lucifer'

A month ago i collected  some Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora 'Lucifer' seeds from my mother plant to sow next year. Today i opened my seed tub where i keep seeds and found the Crocosmia seeds had germinated in the bag. Do i sow these in trays or pots and keep in the green house or would then not survive. On the internet it says sow in late Winter to early Spring (Feb to May).

  • If you don't plant them they will die. If you do plant them they might survive. Play the odds and plant them.

    Dry seeds completely and store them in paper bags to stop that happeningimage

    I favour sowing seeds rather than storing themimage

  • What kind of paper bags can be used for future seed storage?.

    anything, old envelopes are good. Polythene/plastic very bad, keep moisture in and they either germinate, which is OK if you notice, or rot.

    I would pot them up now, they grow easily from seed, should be ok.
