I have been given some swan plant pods which are now starting to burst , spitting out dandelion type fluffy

things with a seed attached to each one . How do I plant /propogate the seeds ?

It will be best to sow the swan plant seeds in a tray filled with seed raising mix and firm down lightly. As the seeds are very light, fluffy and dandelion type seeds, it will be best to just lay them on top of the seed raising mix and give it a light and gentle watering and keep moist until germination. Place the tray in a warm position. Once the seeds have germinated and are about 10cm in height, then they may be planted out. 
Try 'Yates Seed Raising Mix', ideal mix for germination of vegetable, herb and flower seeds and for propagation. Click here for more info on this product:
