How to Grow Rue Seeds
#1 | For an indoor head start, plant your rue seeds under light or in a sunny windowsill 4 weeks before the last spring frost. Direct sow or transplant the seedlings after any chance of frost has passed.
# 2 | Plant your seeds in well-draining soil. Rue does best with a pH of 6.5 to 8.5.
#3 | Scatter rue seeds on the soil's surface, and leave them uncovered; rue requires sunlight to germinate.
#4 | Keep soil evenly moist until germination which should occur in 7-15 days.
