How to Plant

Spread seeds 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, and space plants about 9" apart.

When to Plant

Early spring, or late fall if winters are mild. Sow directly into garden.

When to Expect Blooms

For about six week mid-Summer.

Care Instructions

Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick the flowers to encourage more blooms.

Extra Credit

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.
