How To Grow 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.
