My order arrived today I’m going to stratify them in moist sand in the refrigerator. Plan to start them towards the end of March. Fingers crossed. It was hard to find Poke milkweed seeds. I’m very happy to have found a source.

Placed order on Sunday, received notification of processing and shipping the same day. Package arrived in pristine condition when promised. Website and seed package include clear, straight forward directions for sowing. Will be following them as directed and am hopeful for great results. I wish I had a need for more seeds from this company. Thank you, Lupine Gardens for a pleasant transaction. Seems like you take your company and its customer service very seriously, and that is both refreshing and welcomed! Thank you!
