Hyssop From Seed
Answered by: Inge Poot
Question from: Christiane
Posted on: April 07, 2011

Could you please give me some advice on how to grow hyssop from seed; I bought some seeds from you and they are growing nicely under grow lights in the house. They are now about four inches tall. Can I now transplant them into larger pots and bring them to the cold greenhouse? I live in BC, Canada and the weather is still chilly at night (5C) and during the day between 8 - 10 Celsius.

You can transplant them, but make sure to only handle them by their true leaves. The stems get damaged too easily. Keep the pots out of doors during the day (in the shade at first) and when the night temperatures get close to 10C they can stay out during the night too without any trouble. This way you will harden the plants off and get sturdy rather than overly soft plants.
