As soon as ground can be worked in early spring, sow mix in ordinary garden soil in full sun. In mild climates, where the ground does not freeze hard in winter, seeds can also be planted in late fall to overwinter and bloom the next spring.
Prepare the planting area by removing all weeds, grass and large stones. Break up soil clumps and evenly loosen the top 2 inches of soil with a digging fork or shovel, then smooth out with a flat rake.
Shake the can thoroughly, then scatter the contents thinly and evenly over the prepared ground. Using your rake, lightly cover the seed mixture, about 1/4 inch deep, and then lightly firm the soil. Water thoroughly and evenly with a gentle mist. Keep soil bed evenly moist while awaiting germination and when the seedlings are small. Water regularly for best blossoms.
