How To Grow Lobelia Flowers From Seeds
# 1 | Direct sow your lobelia seeds in late fall. Plant your lobelia seeds on the surface of the soil since these seeds need light to germinate. (For spring planting, mix the seed with moist sand and store it in the refrigerator for 60 days before planting. Transplant the seedlings as soon as they can safely be handled and there is no chance of frost.)
# 2 | Keep your soil evenly moist until seeds germinate. Seedlings should emerge in 20-28 days.
# 3 | Keep your lobelia seedlings well watered and keep nearby weeds controlled. Remember that lobelia need continual moisture, to thrive. To encourage more robust growth make sure to pinch back the stems before they bloom.
