Mullein has a deep tap root and doesn't like disturbance, so they are best sown directly. We recommend sprinkling the seeds on a well prepared garden bed. Sprinkle them generously to get a good strike rate. Do this at the end of winter. Cover seeds with some soil and protect with some bird netting.

Then let them grow and set seeds so you have a continuous supply of fresh seedlings coming up. They are not invasive and can easily be taken out in an area where they are not wanted.
