Milkweed

Asked February 6, 2019, 8:07 PM EST

Can Milkweed be started by seed indoors or should I try to find plants? I had a hard time finding any in the Colorado Springs area.

Thank you for your question .

There are many methods for growing milkweed. Below (links) we have included some reading material gathered from several different universities.

If you don't have any luck with seeds you should be able to go to any local nursery (not big box store) and ask them to order milkweed plants for you.

Please read the information provided and let us know if you have any additional questions.
