Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
    Growing Instructions:

    For earlier blooms, seeds can be started indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost in your area. Follow the seed depth and spacing guidelines indicated below. Once all danger of frost has passed, seedlings should be hardened off before planting in their growing location. Seedlings should be transplanted according to the plant and row spacing directions below. Regularly monitor your plants and ensure that the soil remains moist, while they establish themselves in their new environment.

  • Planting Depth: 6 mm (1/4")

  • Instructions for Nutrient Care: Feed plants SUPERthrive once per week. Mix 1.2 ml (1/4 tsp) per 4L (1 gallon) of water in a watering can and apply solution to the base of the plants.
Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
Growing Suggestions:
  • Harvest flowers when 1/2 of the flower is open. Click here to learn more about harvesting flowers.
  • Regularly removing spent flowers, known as deadheading will promote continuous blooming and encourage the growth of fresh buds. If you have a large cluster of plants, trimming them by around one-third is a simpler alternative to deadheading.
