I would like to have more snakeshead fritillaries and have collected some seed heads as they are not especially spreading left to their own devices. Do I sow now or in the aurumn? Any advice gratefully received as I have not tried sowing these before. Thanks, Janet
You should sow them fresh.
I'm surprised that yours aren't self-seeding - mine do it quite readily.
Ok thanks I'll sow them now. Any special treatment required?
They need a well-drained compost - one part perlite to two parts compost. Full instructions here - good luck!
That's an excellent link Alina - thank you very much! I'll do it tomorrow.

I'm going to give that a go too, assuming it's the same procedure for other sorts of fritillaria.
