Beautiful sprays of white, airy flowers about 2 cm (3/4") across form on these 60-90 cm (2-3') high multi-stemmed plants. The first time you grow Baby's Breath you may find it a bit pernickety. Try it a couple of times to get used to its ways and you will come to love this very useful cut flower. Baby's Breath is a heirloom flower that has also been known through the years as Chalk Plant (a reference to the plants love of alkaline soil), Gauze Flower and Gypsy.

6900 seeds/gram. While seed can be started early indoors, sowing directly outdoors starting in early May and then every two weeks until July works very well for providing continuous blooms through the summer. Sow seed in a sunny area 3 mm (1/8") deep and thin young plants to 30 cm (12") apart. Indoors, sow seed in a soil-less mix during March. Seed generally germinates in 7-14 days at 21 C (70 F). After germination grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting to the garden after the danger of frost has passed. Baby's Breath performs best on calcium rich soil.
