How to Grow
Select a sunny to partially shaded site outdoors and sow seed 3 mm (1/8″) deep from late April through May. Thin or transplant seedlings to 20 cm (8″) apart when they are 5 cm (2″) tall. For June & July flowers, start seed indoors in a soil-less mix in mid-March leaving the seed uncovered on the growing medium. Germination will occur in 14 days at 21 C (70 F). Grow-on under lights at 15 C (60 F) before hardening off then moving them outside in late May. Our snapdragons are heat and disease resistant.
