An easy to grow heirloom annual, Nemophila seeds can be planted in containers, hanging baskets and window boxes, as well as straight into your garden bed or border. These blooms range in color from white, black, and hues of blue.
When to Plant Nemophila Seeds
Sow directly once the threat of frost has passed. Nemophila also does great in containers. For growers in Zones cooler than 7, Nemophila will need to be started indoors 6-8 weeks before the final frost of spring.
Where to Plant Nemophila Seeds
Nemophila does best in cooler climates with full sun conditions, though it can tolerate partial shade. In warmer climates, Nemophila benefits from partial shade.
How to Plant Nemophila Seeds
Nemophila seeds require light to germinate, so be careful not to cover them when planting. Learn more about germination light requirements here.
Prepare your planting site with loosened soil that is weed free. Sow onto the surface of the soil, and compress firmly. Don't cover, as seeds require sunlight to germinate.
How to Care for Nemophila
Remove weeds as Nemophila is establishing. Once established they require little care. As tender annuals, Nemophila will die off with the killing frost.
