Growing Soapwort from seed is very rewarding! Saponaria seeds can be sown either indoors or directly outdoors. For indoor sowing, the Saponaria Soapwort seeds germinates better after a cold treatment. Dampen a paper towel, place the seed on the towel and roll it up. Place the damp towel with the seeds into a ziplock bag and place it in the refrigerator for 4 weeks. After the cold treatment, sow the Pink Soapwort seeds on the surface of starter mix in small pots or trays. Only lightly cover the Saponaria seeds as they need light for germination. For outdoor sowing, prepare soil by loosening and weeding and place 2 - 3 seeds in groups spaced 18 inches apart. Press the flower seed into soil and lightly cover. Keep seeds moist until germination. Outdoor sowing can be done either in fall or spring. Water Saponaria Vaccaria plants regularly to help them establish, and lightly fertilize them a couple of times during the growing season.
