How to Plant BASKET-OF-GOLD Seeds

Sow Basket-of-Gold seeds in cell packs or flats, press into soil but do not cover. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 65° F., germination is in 7-14 days. Transplant 1 foot apart.

Comments: Basket-of-Gold prefers full sun in mild areas, afternoon shade where it is hot, and moderate to little water once established. Shear back Basket-of-Gold plants by ⅓ after flowering to keep them looking neat. Will self-sow if some flowers left to mature. Basket-of-Gold plants tolerate heat and drought, and are deer resistant. Flowers attract butterflies.
