    Planting Instructions:


    Soil Preparation:

    Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep and rake several times to break up large clods. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots.


    For best germination, scarify seeds by shaking with course sand. Start indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting in early Spring or late Fall. Or direct sow in late Fall. Keep soil moist. Plants flower the 2nd year. Frost-tolerant perennial.
