Cyndy Witzke - 5: I have trillium on my property and would like to transplant some. How and when should I do this?
Also, how & when can I collect their seeds?
Skip MNZ4: I moved them late in the season after the seed pods had matured and were just starting to burst open. The outside of the pod turns a dark maroonish red. When the seeds are harvested they should be moist with orangey colored sticky material on them. The number of seeds will vary by plant; one pod contained 18 seeds while another contained 78. I planted them immediately after harvest. If you want to start them indoors over winter the seed treatment is cold-damp. I put three seeds in each planting 'hole' with enough soil to just cover the seed.
