    Would need a ton more info to address the last part of this question. To address the first part, I think anytime early in the planting season would be fine.

    Look up smartweed on history searches and keyword plant.

    I have always harvested any seed I want in late summer or early fall while the seed is still viable. Then I seed in places that I want the desired location in late fall or early winter. Many years ago an old extension agent to me that you should sow whenever Mother Nature does. It works for me.

    Really like the above advice. I've never heard it, but I think I'll hold onto that bit of wisdom!

    Whatever you decide to do, please keep us posted. We'd love to follow along and help along the way if you need it!

    Yeah fall seeding is best. It needs to overwinter for it to germinate in the spring.
