|Cool weather perennials such as Columbine and Hellebores can be started indoors now and transplanted outdoors in two or three months. The seeds
need a chilling period and should be placed in the refrigerator for at least three weeks before planting. They can take up to a month to germinate, so
don't give up on them too soon. Columbine seeds need light to germinate, so don't cover them with soil.
