How To Grow Edelweiss From Seed:
It is recommended to sow Edelweiss ground cover seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks before last frost and transplant outdoors when temperatures have warmed. Edelweiss herb seeds are very small, so do not cover them. Just gently press seeds into the soil in the starter tray. Water from underneath the tray. Transplant the Edelweiss ground cover in a mostly sunny area and in soil that has excellent drainage. Rock gardens, raised beds, or even containers are ideal environments for Edelweiss
