Planting instructions:
Spring planting: place entire seed packet in refrigerator for 30 to 45 days before the last Spring frost in your area. After danger of frost has passed, scatter seed mix into a raked and prepared flower bed. Press seed firmly into soil then water the area lightly but thoroughly. Most seed will emerge in several weeks, some seed may require a longer germination period.
Fall planting: Scatter seed into a raked and prepared flower bed. Press seed firmly into soil then water the area lightly but thoroughly. Seed sown in the fall will emerge in the Spring at the proper time for your region.

If all seeds do not sprout the 1st season, be patient! They will likely sprout in the next growing season
