Sowing: To soften the hard coating on these seeds, rub one side of each seed lightly with sandpaper and soak them in warm water overnight. Mix the seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 30 days before planting. Sow the seed in early spring, planting just below the surface of the soil. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which usually takes place within 7-14 days.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established. Though they flourish with occasional watering in especially dry weather, mature plants tolerate some drought in addition to growing in poor or sandy soil. Avoid fertilizing, since this tends to produce abundant foliage and few blooms. Deadhead to prolong blooming. This plant may self-seed, and attracts bees. It performs well as a container plant.

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.
