Start indoors 6 weeks before frost. Sow seeds in individual pots, one or two per cell. As the sprouts put on their first true leaves, you will be able to distinguish them from each other. Transplant outdoors in full sun or partial shade. Make sure to plant a diversity so that your bouquets will be well-balanced. Grow in single rows to keep taller varieties from shading out lower-growing ones.
