Hyssopus officinalis seeds should be placed in a moist medium such as sand, coco coir, or peat during a cold stratification period of 6 to 8 weeks at temperatures around 40ºF. After that period, move to temperatures around 70ºF for germination. Seeds should be sprinkled across the surface of your soil medium and lightly pressed in, but not covered. Used a well draining potting mix.  Hyssop seeds will germinate in approximately 2 to 4 weeks after sowing, but can begin to germinate in as little as 10-14 days. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.  Established plants prefer light well draining soil mixes and full sun to light shade.
