Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: Sow indoors for early seedling plants. Sow outdoors as soon as danger of frost has passed. Broadcast seed; do not cover with any soil or other medium. Best to water seed with warm water.

TRANSPLANTING: Young seedling plants should be spaced about 6 to 8 inches apart.

Ed's Special Advice

To prolong flowering season, lightly shear back dead flowers after bloom. Grows best in full or part sun but will provide some flower color in shady spots. Easy to grow from seed.
