Start Mullein seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date or sow directly outdoors in late spring after frost threat or early fall for a spring germination. Surface sow seeds simply pressing seeds into soil for good contact and do not cover as they need light to germinate. Transplant seedlings outdoors after the last frost, spacing them 12-24 inches apart. Mullein prefers full sun to light shade and can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, including poor, rocky, or sandy soils. Verbascum will bloom the first year if the flower seeds are sown early enough in the season.
