Planting & Harvesting

Seed Depth: 1/8″(3mm)

Spacing: scatter

Sprouts In: 8-12 days

Thinning: 18-24″ (46-61cm)

Sow in a sunny location with average soil in early spring. Scatter seeds thinly and cover lightly with soil. Keep soil consistently moist until young plants reach about 2″. For earlier blossoms, sow seeds in a well-prepared bed in late fall so they can experience the winter cold cycle.

Plants from seeds sown in the spring will bloom in their second season. Cut back tops by 1/3 after flowering to encourage a second set of flowers in the fall. Very drought tolerant once established.
