This garden in a box has 36 different varieties of seed tubes, so you can plant and play and start seeds to your hearts content. All of these varieties are chosen because they are both easy to grow and a unique, unusual variety so that you'll be growing a flower garden like nothing you could just go buy at a big box store.
We have Sunflower seeds, but they're a rich plum color, we have Cosmos, but they're shaped like cupcake wrappers. We have Marigolds, but they're huge blooms shaped like enormous mums, we have Poppies but they're the most magical dusty grey purple you'll ever see. So. Many. Beautiful. Flowers. Now you get to grow so many of them.
Your seed tube collection comes packaged in a sturdy box with the seed tubes standing up so you can peep all their colorful tops.
Specific instructions are on each individual seed tube, but general instructions are below.
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
All summer, generally
Water during dry spells. Pick flowers to encourage more.
For most of these varieties, when your plant is about 9-12" tall you can pinch off the main growth tip to encourage a bushier plant with more blooms.
