How to Sow and Plant

Strawflower may be grown from seed sown early indoors and transplanted outside after frost, or sown directly in the garden

Sowing Seed Indoors:

Sow strawflower 6-8 weeks before the last frost
Sow seeds evenly and thinly and barely cover with seed starting formula. Seeds need light to germinate
Firm lightly and keep evenly moist
Seedlings emerge in 7-10 days

Plant in the garden after all danger of frost has passed.
Select a location in full sun in soil that drains well.
Prepare the bed by turning the soil under to a depth of 8 inches. Level with a rake to remove clumps of grass and stone

Sowing Directly in the Garden:

Direct sow in well-drained soil and full sun after danger of frost.
Remove weeds and work organic matter into the top 6-8 inches of soil; then level and smooth.

Sow seeds evenly and thinly and barely cover with fine soil. Seeds need light to germinate.
Firm lightly and keep evenly moist.
Seedlings will emerge in 7-10 days depending on soil and weather conditions.
Thin to stand about 12 inches apart starting when seedlings are 2 inches high.
