Cover seeds. A heat mat will help maintain an accurate temperature.</h4><h4>Lower temperatures will result in slower germination: 5-7 days at 70-75°F (21-24°C). Harden off and transplant out after last frost. Do not allow plants to become root bound and avoid disturbing roots; transplant shock or other stress events may cause double-flowering varieties to produce single blooms for a period following stress. Direct seed - After last frost, sow 1/4” deep. Succession-sow/plant every 2 weeks for prolonged yields of high-quality stems. Pinching of initial bud or bloom and subsequent deadheading is recommended to encourage strong branching and bloom production.<br></h4><div><br></div><h2>Soil Requirements<br></h2><div><h4>Fertile soil rich in organic matter. pH: 6.3-6.8 preferred.</h4><br></div><h2>Harvest<br></h2><h4>Before completely open. Stem is firm from point of cut to just below the bloom.​<br></h4><p><br></p></div>
