How to Grow:

Direct seed (recommended) - In early spring after last frost (sow in the fall in the South). Sow seed thinly in rows, covering lightly. Make 2-3 successive sowings, 2 weeks apart for a continuous summer harvest. Transplant - Sow 4-6 weeks before planting out.



 Harvesting before 80% of flowers are open tends to reduce the uptake of water and cause the flowers to wilt. Dried: When the flowers are fully open and with no hint of pollen shed.


Vase Life:

With a proper care and handling will last for 7-10 days
