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. 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.
