Best sown from fall to early spring. Prepare a shallow dish, like a pie pan, with 1/2" of very warm tap water (out of the faucet hot - do not exceed 140 degrees). Place your seeds in the warm water and let it cool where you need to let your seeds soak for at least 24 hours. Direct sow seeds and cover lightly with peat or compost. Bluebonnet's require consistent moisture and failure to germinate is usually due to dry fall weather. You can not direct seed in late spring or summer.
You can start these early in pots but they dislike being transplanted so use a 4" peat pot and do not remove from the pot when transplanting, or seed in the pot they are going to stay in. Keep you potting mixture moist during germination and letting your seed bed dry out will ensure little or no germination.
