Special Directions For Short Season Climates

SOWING: Indoors for early, young seedling plants or outdoors as soon as all danger of frost has passed. Simply broadcast seed. Do not cover with any soil or medium. Best to water seed with warm water.

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

GERMINATION: From seed to bloom in approximately 6 to 7 weeks. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

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