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

For about 6 weeks in the Summer.

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

You can sear the end of the cut stem with a lighter or boiling water for a few seconds to extend the vase life.
