The hardest part for propagating spring beauty is finding the seeds before the plants disappear. Bluebell seeds are a little easier, but both require good timing and vigilance.
One year I stored Claytonia seeds in a ziplock bag filled with damp sand all summer then put them in my fridge around October. By December, they had germinated IN MY FRIDGE! I spent the rest of the winter having to bring the seedlings inside when temps went below freezing. Since then, I keep all my seeds outside all year in the salad containers.
