Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
    Growing Instructions:

    Scarlet Flax seeds can be sown directly into the garden when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is passed. Soil temperature (not air temperature) should be warmer than 15°C (60°F) for seeds to germinate. Planting at a lower temperature will delay germination. Choose a location that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight daily. Space seeds and plant to the depth indicated below. Press seeds into the soil to ensure good contact and cover with 3 mm (1/8") of soil. After planting, water the seeds with a gentle mist or shower. A hard spray can wash soil away, dislodge seeds and clump them together. It is critical to keep the soil consistently moist, but not soggy during germination. Do not let the soil dry out, as young plants have underdeveloped roots and can quickly dehydrate, particularly in windy conditions.

  • Planting Depth: 3 mm (1/8")

  • 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:
  • Keep soil moist until well established, then water only as required.
  • Scarlet Flax seeds can be sown using the scatter method. Simply roughen the soil with a rake, scatter seeds evenly over the surface, then smooth the soil over lightly to cover the seeds.
  • 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.
