How to Plant Cleome Seeds

Sow Cleome seed in cell packs or flats press into soil and barely cover. Keep at 75-80°F. during the day, and 10°F. cooler at night. Germination is in 10-21 days. The 'Queen' series cleomes are best sown where they are to grow after all danger of frost ¼ inch deep and 3 inches apart. Thin to 18-24 inches apart.

Growing Cleome: The Sparkler series is primed for easy germination and should not be chilled prior to sowing. The Queen series will germinate at higher rates if the seed is chilled. Spread seed out evenly on a moist paper towel, fold and put inside a zip-lock bag. Place bag in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. Remove seeds and immediately sow into prepared seed beds. For both series high daytime temperatures followed by cooler nighttime temperatures is extremely beneficial. Outdoors this temperature swing occurs naturally. Indoors, using a heating pad during the day, and turning it off at night is effective.
