NOTE

The seed mix is packed with a larger quantity of organic rice hulls to help space the tiny seeds. Before opening, shake canister thoroughly to mix them together.

 

HOW TO PLANT

As soon as ground can be worked in early spring, sow mix in ordinary garden soil in full sun. In mild climates, where the ground does not freeze hard in winter, seeds can also be planted in late fall to over-winter and bloom the next spring. Prepare the planting area by removing all weeds, grass and large stones. Break up soil clumps and evenly loosen the top 2 inches of soil with a rake.

Shake the can thoroughly, then scatter the contents thinly and evenly over the prepared ground. Using your rake, lightly cover the seed mixture, about 1/4 inch deep, and then lightly firm the soil. Water thoroughly and evenly with a gentle mist. Keep soil bed evenly moist while awaiting germination and when the seedlings are small. Water regularly for best blossoms.

 

GROWING NOTES

Plants will flower in succession and bloom much longer if watered regularly. At season’s end, allow spent flowers to form pods and then drop their seeds to bloom again next spring.
