Blackberry Lily Seeds And Pods – When/How To Plant Them

Q: Someone gave us a basket full of blackberry lily seeds and pods. When and how is the best time to plant them? 

A: I planted a couple dozen seed last spring and about half of them came up, which was to be expected. I simply dug an inch-deep hole for each seed and dropped them in. The ones that came up were six inches high this fall: healthy but too small to make a flower stem. The leaves have turned brown for winter but they will reappear in spring. I imagine they will be big enough to flower next year.
