How to Plant

Tuck seeds 1/8" deep, 2" apart. Water gently and regularly as seedlings emerge over the next 2 wks. Once babies are 2” tall, pluck so there's just one per 12"

Where to Plant

Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, and space plants about 9" apart.

When to Plant

Plant outside after your average last frost in the Spring.

When to Expect Blooms

Mid-Summer through frost.

Care Instructions

Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick the flowers regularly (Bring the flowers in! Make bouquets! Have fun!) to encourage more blooms. And ask us any questions along the way.

Extra Credit

Asters are sensitive to frost, wait until the ground has warmed up to plant outside.
