The best time to plant in your area depends on the climate and rainfall patterns. In cool climates, plant in spring, early summer, or late fall. Fall plantings should be late enough so that seeds do not germinate until spring.
In mild climates, plant during the cooler months of the year, fall through spring, for best results. Fall plantings before periods of rainfall will ensure an early display of flowers the following spring.
Select a sunny, well-drained area. Rake soil to form a clean, loose seedbed. Scatter seed mix evenly over the area to be planted, rake the area gently, and lightly pack the soil. Water, if needed, to keep the soil moist in spring or summer until germination occurs, then water as needed. Germination will begin within 7–21 days when the soil temperature is 65oF (18oC) or warmer. Annual flowers will begin to bloom within 6–8 weeks after germinating. Perennials will produce foliage the first year and bloom the following years.
