Sowing: For the best germination rates, pour very hot water over the seed and soak it overnight; next, mix it with moist sand and store it in the refrigerator for 10-20 days before planting. In early spring, plant the treated seed 1/2" deep. If seed is fall planted, only the hot water treatment is needed before direct sowing 1/2" deep.

Growing: This plant prefers sandy or well-drained soil. Since it tolerates drought well, watering is usually not needed. Taller plants may droop slightly, especially if the soil is rich. This plant makes an excellent addition to native prairie plantings or home gardens because of its attractive foliage and bright flowers, though it has also been used for erosion control. Though an annual, it will abundantly reseed itself. Many wild birds are attracted to this plant because of its seeds, which are a major food source for bobwhite, quail, and partridges. Butterflies and bees also flock to this 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.
