Q.Balloon Flower

Anonymous added on August 10, 2015 | Answered

Deadheaded my balloon flowers. Will plants rebloom? Also, many different opinions on how to plant seeds:

1 – take seeds out of pods and let dry
2 – leave pods intact and spread over soil, top w/light soil in spring
3 – never transplant?

Which is correct or are they all wrong?

For the best germination, take the seeds out of the pods. You can wait till the pods are dry to take the seeds out. They can be planted in the house and transplanted later, but remember that they need light to germinate so should be just placed on top of the soil and not buried in the soil.
