  • Keep media moist and near saturation by watering before planting seed. Start 6-8 weeks before the last frost is expected.
  • Do not cover or bury the seed, just press lightly into the wet soil,  as Aster seeds needs light for germination.
  • Germination improves when you give the seed a cold treatment when seed is started indoors, place the seed in its seed tray outdoors at 40 degrees or in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks. After cold treatment start indoors at a temperature of 72-76ºF. Germination should occur within 2-3 weeks.
  • If you have high lights or a greenhouse you can start 8 weeks before your last frost.
  • If you do not have high lights or a greenhouse you should start your seeds 12-14 weeks prior to your last frost.
  • You can transplant the seedlings when they have 4 true leaves 2-3 inches apart.
