Mugwort seeds germinate best with a cold treatment to break the seed's dormancy. Some herb gardeners will sow the herb seeds directly out in the garden in the late fall for germination the next spring. Others mix the herb seeds with dampened peat moss and place the Mugwort seeds/peat moss mixture in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 weeks before planting. The Mugwort herb plant can be invasive. It spreads by underground rhizomes and by re-seeding.
