Sowing: Direct sow in spring after the soil has warmed to about 70 degrees F. Press the seed into the soil's surface, since it requires light to sprout; keep the soil moist until it germinates, which usually occurs in 10-15 days. To start indoors, sow the seed in flats 4-6 weeks before the last frost; keep the soil lightly moist until germination, and transplant the seedlings outdoors as soon as the weather allows. This plant grows well in rich, light soils; for continuous bloom, plant a new crop every 3-4 weeks.

Growing: This plant grows quickly and can tolerate some drought, though it grows best with regular watering as it develops and begins to bloom. This plant will begin to bloom in about 4 weeks from seed, for a duration of about 6 weeks. It will self-seed readily , though cutting the foliage down to ground level after blooming will prevent this. This plant attracts bees and butterflies, and resists deer.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.


If you can’t find germinating and instructions online you can find them on the item page. Our goal is to save money everywhere we can so we can pass those savings on to you.
