How to Plant
Stick 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, in well-draining soil.
When to Plant
Spring, after last frost, or start inside 6 weeks earlier.
When to Expect Blooms
Blooms all summer.
Tolerant of heat and poor soil, but water during dry spells. Pick flowers to encourage more.
When your plant is about 9-12" tall you can pinch off the main growth tip to encourage a bushier plant with more blooms.
