Here is the BEST Time to Start Moss Rose Seeds in Tennessee (2023 Guide)

Do you want to grow moss rose seeds in Tennessee, but don’t know when to start them?

Starting moss rose seeds is not as easy as it seems.

Here’s why:

  • Moss Rose Seeds must be consistently watered, receive at least 8 hours of sunlight a day, & be kept at room temperature of at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

So if you don’t consistently water them they won’t germinate. If they aren’t in a room that is at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit they won’t sprout. And if it receives 8 hours of sunlight the plant itself won’t grow.

  • Because Tennessee’s growing season is not long enough, moss rose seeds cannot be sowed outside and should only be started indoors.

Because of this, I’m going to teach you the ideal time to start moss rose seeds indoors in Tennessee:

When to Start Moss Rose Seeds Indoors

Depending on the type of moss rose, it takes roughly 14 days (2 weeks ) to grow moss rose from seed indoors before you can transplant them into your garden. And it could take 6 – 8 weeks for your moss rose to bloom!

The approximate date of when you should start your moss rose seeds indoors can be found by:

  • Finding the last average frost date HERE
  • And then subtract 14 days from it

To help ensure the greatest success of your moss rose seeds germinating you should:

  • Use a heat mat to ensure the gardening pot remains at 70 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Use a grow light to control how much light your moss rose seeds receive
  • Water your seeds with a spray bottle to ensure your seeds are not overwatered

It should also be noted that you will not want to introduce your moss rose plants into your garden until 2 weeks after your last frost or else your plant will potentially die or not bloom
