It is recommended to scarify the Astragalus herb seeds by scratching the seed coat with a file or nicking it with a knife. It is also helpful to soak the Astragalus herb seeds in hot water for 24 - 48 hours. This scarification helps the seed to germinate more quickly. Most herb gardeners recommend starting the Milk Vetch seed directly outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Astragalus herb plants prefer sandy, well-drained soils that have some organic compost worked into it. The first year of establishment is the most challenging. Mulch around the herb plant to protect it during its first winter.
