START SEEDS INDOORS

Start seeds indoors in a container of seed starting mix in early spring 6 to 8 weeks before the last expected frost. Dampen soil mix evenly before sowing. Sow seeds 1 inch apart, covering only with a fine dusting of mix. Keep evenly moist but not soggy and provide a strong light source until ready to plant outdoors. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, transplant them 2 inches apart into a deeper container. After they reach 2 to 3 inches tall, gradually acclimate sturdy, well-established seedlings to outdoor conditions before transplanting in full sun.

 

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 10 to 12 inches apart for best performance.

 

GROWING NOTES

Heat and wind-resistant Chantilly adds height, color and texture to garden beds and provides abundant gorgeous summer bouquets. Feed and water well and keep spent flower stalks cut off for longest bloom season. Cut stalks when 8-10 blossoms are open; do not crowd in the vase for best, longest lasting cut flowers. In mild climates, snapdragons can also be planted in late fall to overwinter and bloom as a spring flower.
