EASIEST TO START OUTDOORS

In late spring, plant into fertile soil in full sun, only after night temperatures are evenly above 50° F (10° C) both day and night. Poke seeds into well worked soil 1-2 inches deep and 6 inches apart. Firm soil over seeds and keep moist as seedlings emerge.

Important: When seedlings are about 3 inches tall, thin them to a final spacing of 1 foot apart, so plants can grow sturdy stalks and big flowers. Extra seedlings can be easily transplanted.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Several weeks before last frost date, sow seeds 1 inch deep in individual pots of well-drained seed starting mix. Keep moist and provide a strong light source. When seedlings are 2-3 inches tall, and and nights are above 50° F (10° C), acclimate to outdoor conditions, then plant out one foot apart into rich garden soil in full sun.

 

GROWING NOTES

Make several sowings a few weeks apart to have a succession of flowers in full bloom. Keep soil moist and well weeded. Protect very young seedlings from birds with netting or berry baskets, removing before plants get crowded. Cut for bouquets just as flowers begin to open.
