As soon as the ground can be worked in early spring, plant the seeds 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.
To prepare the planting area: remove 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 before opening, then scatter the contents thinly and evenly over the prepared ground. Using your rake, cover the seed mixture 1/4 inch deep and lightly firm the soil. Water with a gentle mist thoroughly and evenly. Keep the soil moist while awaiting germination and while the seedlings are small.
