Sowing: Direct sow in spring after the last chance of frost, sowing on the surface of the soil; press the soil down lightly and keep moderately moist until germination, which should take place within 10-14 days. To start indoors, sow on the surface of a flat 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring. Keep the soil lightly moist and at a temperature of 70 degrees F until germination. Transplant or thin the seedlings as soon as they reach a height of several inches.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established; mature plants also appreciate occasional watering, but since this plant tolerates drought well too much moisture will cause disease and root rot. To encourage branching and bushy growth, pinch off the growing tips; deadheading helps increase blooming all season long. If blooming decreases midseason, cut the plant back by half for new growth. This plant will self-seed, but does not become weedy. For healthiest growth, mature plants should be divided in the fall or early spring. Cut the plants down to 2" above the ground after the first frost. Good drainage over winter is essential for this plant's survival. This plant's low mounding growth habit makes it an excellent choice for the front of a border or for supporting taller plants; it also makes a good container plant. These plants attract butterflies and resist 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.
