How to Plant

Dig a hole and tuck your plant in so it is even with the soil. Now give your plant a good wish, a few solid pats to compress the soil around it, and a long drink of water.

Where to Plant

Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, and space plants about 12" apart.

When to Plant

Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon. Plant outside after your average last frost in the Spring.

When to Expect Blooms

Sweet, sweet summertime.

Care Instructions

Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Happy in hot, dry, poor soil. Pick blooms regularly to encourage more. And, ask us any questions along the way.

Extra Credit

When your plant is about 9-12" tall you can pinch off the main growth tip to encourage a bushier plant with more blooms.
