Tips on How to Grow Bachelor’s Buttons (Coneflower)
|Germination: in 6-10 days-Fleuroselect Novelty Award Winner. |
Direct Sow: Bachelor buttons are easy to grow from seeds outdoors. Sow in spring, 1 to 2 weeks before the last expected frost, for early summer blooms. They can also be sown in fall in mild climates for early spring blooms.
Sow seeds: 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart.
The seeds need complete darkness to germinate, so make sure they are well covered. When seedlings are 1 to 2 inches tall, thin them to 6 to 8 inches apart. The first blooms appear 10 to 12 weeks after planting, and last for about a month. Successive plantings can extend the bloom period.
GARDEN HINTS: Bachelor's buttons bloom best in cool weather and will tolerate poor soil conditions. Make successive sowings for continuous blooming. Plants are drought and frost tolerant.
