Wayne Bowman, Hunt County Master Gardener, says now is the time to plant bluebonnet seeds if you want them to pop up next spring.  He says a good place to buy them is the U.S. Department of Agriculture office, at 5522 Highway 224 on the northeast side of Greenville.  In this program, we talk about fall gardening for vegetables and perennials.

Hunt County Master Gardener Byron Chitwood says September is the time to plant bluebonnets so that they'll grow next spring.  He recommends scarifying, or roughing up, the seeds and soaking them in warm water.  It's also the time plant other wildflower seeds.
