Planting & Care

Soil & Water: The plant prefers full sun to shade and moist soils. If you bump them up with organic compost, they can be prolific and stunning.

Planting & Growing: Sow seed in early spring or cold-condition in moist medium in the refrigerator (not the freezer) for a week or two before sowing in warm soil. Really a very easy plant to start and to grow. Thin or transplant to 6" apart.

Harvesting & Storage: The entire plant is active, but the flowers are most useful and should be picked right before bloom opens. Pick at full flowering glory and dry in the shade.

Reviews

Thought shipping was expensive

I was under the impression I was being sent a starter plant, so was surprised when I got the seeds. that could have been my fault, but in any case thought the shipping was very expensive for a very thin pack of seeds.
