Planting Instructions:
Sow Lady's Mantle seeds in the early spring indoors, 6 - 8 weeks before last frost. A cold treatment, placing the seeds in dampened sand or peat moss, and placing in the refrigerator for 3 - 4 weeks prior to sowing has been found beneficial to germination. After removing the flower seeds from the refrigerator, use starter trays and sterile potting mix. Press the flower seeds into the soil and cover no more than 1/8 inch.

Transplant the Lady's Mantle seedlings outdoors after the danger of frost has passed. The Achemilla Mollis plant should be sheared back after blooming to rejuvenate the leaves to make the clump neat and tidy for the rest of the growing season.
