How to Plant
Start indoors 2 months before last frost. Press seeds into dirt but do not cover, as they need light to germinate. Water by misting.
Where to Plant
Find a place that gets mostly sun, and space 6-10" apart.
When to Plant
Transfer outside in the spring after your last frost, when weather has warmed.
When to Expect Blooms
Blooms spring and fall, and through mild summers.
Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick the flowers to encourage more blooms.
If your summers are hot, they may stop blooming in July and August, but will begin again in the fall. Cut stems for vases when the bottom buds open.
