Sowing: Direct sow in late fall, planting just below the surface of the soil. For spring planting, mix the seed with moist sand and store it in the refrigerator for 30 days before planting; keep the soil lightly moist until germination. Since these plants do not transplant well and are semi-parasitic, starting them indoors may not be successful.

The PFAF Bookshop
We are working on a subset of plants in the PFAF database identified as having the most potential for inclusion in such designs. We are adding search terms and icons to those plants pages, and providing a range of search options aligned to categories of plants and crop yields, with Help facilities including videos. Plants For A Future can not take any responsibility for any adverse effects from the use of plants.
