  • The seeds should be scattered over the soil and then covered with a light layer of soil.
  • The soil should remain moist, but not overly wet as this could cause rotting, during the germination period of three weeks to three months.
  • The weakest Hypericum seedlings should be removed as should any weeds that spring up.
