Sowing: Plant the seeds indoors about 10-12 weeks before the last frost of spring. In a germination flat, press the seed into the surface of the soil; this seed needs light to germinate. Since this seed is tiny, mixing it with sand may help it spread evenly. Keep the soil lightly moist and in a warm place until germination, which usually takes 7-14 days. As soon as the seedlings can safely be handled, transplant them into individual pots; plant them outdoors after the last chance of frost.

Growing: Water seedlings until they become established. Mature plants tolerate some drought, though they flourish with occasional watering. To encourage branching, pinch back the tips as they grow. For extended blooming, remove the spent blossoms.This compact plant makes an excellent choice for hanging baskets, borders, and containers; it also attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. This plant also reseeds itself.

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.
