Alternatively, seeds can be sown directly to the garden as soon as the soil can be turned (a few weeks before the average last frost date) or in late October before the snow has accumulated. Direct-seeded plants will likely not bloom until the second year if sown in spring.
Growing in Containers: Not suited for containers.
Fertilizing (Garden): Plant in average garden soil, and feed with an organic bloom fertilizer monthly.
