How to Plant Amaranthus Seeds

Direct sow into prepared seed beds after all danger of frost (and the soil has fully warmed) in groups of 4 seeds spaced 18 to 24 inches apart. Thin to the strongest plant. Or, scatter seed over ground that has had the top 1 inch of soil loosened. Rake seed in lightly, walk over area to firm soil. Keep moist until germination. Easy to germinate, however seeds will not sprout in cool soil. Can also be started indoors in cell packs or 2 inch containers. Kept at 65-75° F., germination is in 10-21 days.

Comments: Full or part sun. Tolerates high heat. Any soil as long as drainage is good. Faster growth, more flowers with regular water, will tolerate some drought once established. Attracts birds.
