How to Plant

Dig a hole and tuck your plant in so it is even with the soil. Now give your plant a good wish, a few solid pats to compress the soil around it, and a long drink of water.

Where to Plant

Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, and space plants at least 18" apart.

When to Plant

Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon. Plant outside after your average last frost in the Spring.

When to Expect Blooms

Summer, into Winter.

Care Instructions

Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. And ask us any questions along the way.

Extra Credit

To dry the grass, wait until the pollen sheds, and then leave in a cool dark room.
