How To Grow 2800 seeds/g Reliably compact & uniform. Easy to sow directly outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Plants will bloom in 6 to 8 weeks from sowing. For transplants, sow seed indoors at the beginning of April -press seed into the soil-less growing medium but do not cover. Germinates at 20 C (70 F) in 5-10 days. Grow on under lights then harden off and transplant outside at the end of May spacing plants 10 cm (4") apart in the garden. Sweet alyssum can often reseed itself outside - a welcome surprise addition to any garden! Plants make their best growth in well drained soil in sunny sites where summers are cooler and in partly shaded sites (4-6 hours of sun) in hot summer areas. A gentle shearing of the plants after the first flush of blooms finish will stimulate a second flush of blooms.
