Free Tropical Milkweed Seeds

monarch-dsc04726I have some milkweed seeds that I’d be glad to share. The seeds are Tropical Milkweed, Asclepias curassavica.

Plant the seed so it is slightly covered and keep warm and moist to start. If you start these inside, you can get a a head start on spring. Plant when all danger of frost is gone – usually around May 1st in St. Louis Missouri.

Another option is to plant the seeds in the soil and let them come up naturally.

You can pick these up at Saturday’s presentation – March 3rd – 1 p.m. at Whitecliff Recreation Center – Crestwood, Missouri.

OR – please send a SASE – Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope to:

Free Milkweed Seeds
9016 Robyn Rd
St. Louis, MO 63126

The best way to start these seeds is with bottom heat. 










80 degrees and seeds slightly covered seems to be the best. I did put the plastic top on this to keep in the heat and moisture.
