How To Grow

Sow in seed trays or punnets, 5mm (¼”) deep, or direct in flowering position. Plant 45cm (18”) apart, waiting until frosts are over. In hot weather, mulch well around the roots to conserve moisture and keep roots cool. Asters require plenty of water during their growing and flowering season. Seedlings emerge 10-14 days.
