How to Plant and Grow Ornamental Millet

Bee introduces how to plant

Plant Ornamental Millet Seeds: Sow seeds in individual 2-4 in. containers, 2-3 seeds per pot, and cover with ½ in. of soil. Kept at 72-78°F., germination is in 3-10 days. Can direct sow into prepared seed beds, after the soil has warmed, and all danger of frost has passed. Thin to 12 in. apart.

Grow Ornamental Millet: Full sun or part shade. If started indoors young plants will be green, and will begin to color within a few days of being placed in the sun. Plants tolerate high heat, can be planted against fences and walls, along driveways in hot spots that would burn most plants. Seeds are loved by goldfinches.
