How to Plant
Tuck seeds 1/8" deep, 2" apart. Water gently and regularly as seedlings emerge over the next 2 wks. Once babies are 2” tall, pluck so there's just one per 12"
Where to Plant
Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, and space plants about 9" apart.
When to Plant
Plant outside after your average last frost in the Spring.
When to Expect Blooms
For about six week mid-Summer.
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.
You can sear the end of the cut stem for a few seconds in boiling water or with a flame to prolong the vase life.
