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