How to Sow Celosia:
- When danger of frost is past, sow outdoors where plants are to grow
- Indoors, sow 4 weeks prior to planting outside
- Cover the seeds with 4 times their thickness in soil
- Maintain 70-75° F within the medium during germination
- Germination takes 10-15 days
- Blooms arrive 12-14 weeks after starting seeds. Sowing too early can hurt flower performance
- When sowing seed outdoors, we recommend a maximum planting depth of 4X the width of the seed
How to Grow Celosia:
Spacing: In spring, after danger of frost is past, space 6-18 inches apart in full sun in a well-drained, sandy soil rich in organic matter
Temperature: It prefers warm climates with nights above 60° F
Soil: Keep soil evenly moist and feed plants moderately
Additional Care: Celosia transplants easily, requires no staking and tolerates heat and drought. Mulch in summer to keep the roots cool and retain moisture
