l have a small bunch of Ophiopgan Nigrescens seeds black fleshy fruits when is the best time to sow them and is their anything special that l need to do to start them of.

On plant Ophiopogon



Only thing I can find on the internet is that the seed should be sown as soon as possible after harvesting, preferably in the autumn and placed in a cold frame. Cant find anything else sorry....
