Planting & Harvesting

Seed Depth: barely cover

Spacing: scatter thinly

Sprouts In: 15-20 days

Thinning: 2-4″ (5-10cm)

Start indoors 10-12 weeks before last spring frost. In mild climates, plants may be started in late summer for winter bloom. Scatter tiny seeds thinly and keep evenly moist. Transplant to a location with full sun. Plants will tolerate partial shade but may produce fewer blossoms.

Shear back plants in midsummer if hot weather stops flower production. This will encourage flowering as soon as cooler weather returns.
