Sowing

Sow February to April. Place seed on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 18-20C (64-68F) until after germination which usually takes 20 to 25 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm (3 inch) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 23-30cm (9-12 inches) apart.

More Info
Water coreopsis regularly until they are fully established. Deadhead faded coreopsis flowers regularly to encourage more blooms to be produced throughout the summer.
