So, in the meantime, I scarified the butterfly peas last night and then had them soak per the growing instructions. My goodness, that scarifying process was some tedious and required very nimble fingers. A painstaking process to be sure. In the ground they will go this morning as soon as the sun comes up.
I found out that the flower when steeped in a cup of coconut milk with a little bit of honey makes a lovely sedating before bedtime.
