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.
