Plant seeds late in the fall just below the surface and water them once. If you want to plant the seed directly in the spring, you must first stratify it by mixing it with wet sand and putting it in the fridge for 60 days. To start the stratified seed indoors, plant purple flower seeds in a flat. Keep the soil evenly moist and the temperature between 65-70°F until the seeds sprout, which should take 14 to 20 days. After the last frost of spring, you can transplant the seedlings.
