TO START EARLY INDOORS

Start seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before last frost date. Sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix and cover very lightly. Keep moist but not soggy and provide a strong light source. When seedlings are about 2 to 3 inches tall, and night temperatures are above 50°F (10°C), acclimate to outdoor conditions and plant 8 inches apart.

 

TO START DIRECTLY OUTDOORS

Sow in well-worked beds or in containers in full sun only after night temperatures reach 50°F (10°C). Plant seeds 4 inches apart and cover very lightly. Keep soil evenly moist. Thin seedlings to 8 inches apart so plants have room to mature.

 

CONTAINER PLANTING

Plant 4 seedlings in a 20 inch pot; 3 in a 16 inch pot, and 1 seedling in an 8 inch pot.

 

GROWING NOTES

Plants grow quickly to 12-18 inches tall and bloom all summer long Honey Bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, and many other pollinators constantly visit these nectar-rich flowers.
