Indoor sow by surface sowing the seeds in pots or trays and do not cover - just tamp into soil. Mugwort seeds need light to germinate. Water from beneath as not to wash away seeds and cover with plastic.
Cold stratify seeds - Mugwort seeds need cold weather to break down germination inhibitors. Either place newly sown pots or flats in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or place them outside against a north wall and leave them there until the spring.
Keep soil most. Transplant when seedlings are large enough to handle and plant them in their permanent locations in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frost. Water regularly until mature.
