How to Plant Laceflower Seeds
Sow seeds in cell packs or 2″ pots, press into soil but do not cover. Light aids germination. Kept at 60-65° F., germination is in 14-25 days. Can direct sow (barely cover) after all danger of frost in groups of 3 seeds spaced 15-24″ apart. Thin to the strongest plant.
Plants need regular moisture and full to part sun. Attracts beneficial insects. For fresh cut flowers: When 75% of the blooms in a flower head is open, cut stem using a sharp knife, and remove bottom leaves. Dried flowers: hang flower heads in a dry, dark place. Darkness preserves color of the blooms, light will cause flowers to brown.
