How to Plant

Tuck seeds 1/4" deep, 2" apart. Water gently & regularly as seedlings emerge over the next 2 wks. Once babies are 2” tall, pluck so there's just one per 9"

Where to Plant

Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, thin plants to about 9-12" apart.

When to Plant

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.
