How To Grow 1500 seeds/gram In late May or early June, sow seed directly outdoors 6 mm (1/4") deep and 5 cm (2") apart then thin to 30 cm (1') apart when the seedlings are 5-7.5 cm (2-3") tall. To produce extra large flowers, remove all but 1 bud from each flower stem. Straw flower does best in full sun but will tolerate some shade. It also tolerates growing in poor or drier soils.
