1. Plant hyssop seeds in early spring inside (from March to June). Fill small planting containers or a planting tray with commercial potting soil and spread the hyssop seeds on the top of the soil. The seeds are tiny, so cover them with no more than 3-4 mm of potting soil.
2. Put the planting containers in plastic bags, with the tops of the bags left open. If you're planted the seeds in a planting tray, cover the tray with a sheet of clear plastic.
3. Place the planting containers in a warm place but out of direct sunlight.
Germination time - 2 weeks at +16-+20C.
When the seedlings emerge, remove the plastic cover and put the seedlings in a sunny window until the seedlings can be moved outdoors in the spring, after the last frost of the season.
