WHEN TO SOW
Good King Henry is notoriously hard to germinate. It can either be sown in pots in October or November, or alternatively it can be sown in the Spring.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
The seed should be sown in a gritty compost. In the Autumn they should be covered with about 1cm (1/4″) of compost (they require dark to germinate) and left outside to allow the winter weather to break down the dormancy. Nothing will happen until Spring as soon as the weather is conducive. In the Spring the seed should only be lightly covered as it needs light to germinate (since it hasn’t been chilled). Germination could take weeks or months.
Pick leaves any time whilst dry and the sun is not too strong.
