Virginia is nestled in between the Appalachian mountains and the Eastern coast line. The state boasts beaches, forests, mountains and marshes. Despite the state's varying topography, snapdragons, short-lived perennials, grow in flower beds throughout the state.
Fill peat pots with potting mix.
Place three snapdragon seeds in each pot. Push the seeds into the soil.
Water the peat pots thoroughly. Keep the soil moist for five to 10 days as the seeds germinate. Seedlings should sprout within two weeks.
Once the seedlings have sprouted one set of true leaves, they can be planted outside.
Prepare the flower bed. In addition to clearing out any leaves and debris, dig holes for the snapdragon seedlings. Space the holes approximately 10 to 12 inches apart.
Place peat pots into the prepared flower bed. Cover the pots with soil and water thoroughly.
Fertilize snapdragons three to four weeks after planting.
