How long does it take for sweet woodruff seeds that have been planted directly into the ground in spring to germinate, assuming that is the right word?

These seeds germinate best following a cold period. In fact, sweet woodruff thrives in cooler areas. Normally those living in warmer climes start them indoors, placing the pots in the refrigerator for about two weeks to chill. In cooler areas, they will automatically receive this 'chill' period when directly sown outdoors. That said, in your region the seeds may not have gotten a suitable chilling beforehand, thus the germination process may take a bit longer than normal, which is usually anywhere from two to three weeks, and sometimes a little longer. Don't give up on it though - with a little patience the plant could still surprise you.
