How to Plant
Stick in the dirt 1/8" deep, 2" apart. Water gently and regularly as seedlings emerge over the next 2 weeks. Once babies are 2” tall, pluck so there's just one per 8-12".
Where to Plant
Find a place that gets mostly sun, in well-draining soil.
When to Plant
Spring, after last frost, or start inside 6 weeks earlier.
When to Expect Blooms
Blooms all summer long.
Tolerant of heat and poor soil, but water during dry spells. Pick flowers to encourage more.
When your plant is about 9-12" tall you can pinch off the main growth tip to encourage a bushier plant with more blooms.
