How to grow:
Sow into 72-cell flats or preferred seedling container 4 weeks before last frost. Cover seeds. A heat mat will help maintain an accurate temperature. Lower temperatures will result in slower germination: 5-7 days at 70-75°F (21-24°C). Harden-off and transplant out after last frost. Do not allow plants to become root bound and avoid disturbing roots; transplant shock or other stress events may cause double-flowering varieties to produce single blooms for a period following stress.

Direct seed - After last frost, sow 1/4" deep. Succession-sow/plant every two weeks for prolonged yields of high-quality stems. Pinching of initial bud or bloom and subsequent deadheading is recommended to encourage strong branching and bloom production.

 

Harvest:
Before completely open. Stem is firm from point of cut to just below the bloom.

 

Vase Life:
Will last for 7-10 days. Flower preservative is recommended
