Sowing: Sow seeds as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. Plant just below the surface of the soil and keep moist until germination, which usually occurs within 10-15 days at 60-65 degrees F. For continuous blooming, plant a new crop every 4 weeks. In mild climates, sow in late fall for early spring blooms.

Growing: Water seedlings occasionally until they become established. Though mature plants prefer fairly dry soil, water them occasionally to prevent the soil from entirely drying out. Remove wilted blossoms for new growth. Though the blossoms remain closed during the day, they open at the end of the day and produce a lovely fragrance all night long. These flowers actually produce a stronger scent when grown without much fertilization or watering.

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.
