Sowing: Direct sow in spring, pressing into the surface of the soil. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which usually occurs within 1-2 weeks. This plant can also be started indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring.

Growing: Water seedlings occasionally until they become established; since they need good drainage, mature plants grow well in drought and poor soil. Soil that is too rich and moist will have a negative effect. If planted in a windy location, staking or support may be necessary. Deadhead to prolong the blooming season. This plant will self-seed occasionally in good growing conditions. It attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.

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.
