Direct sow in the garden after your last frost when the soil has warmed considerably. Soil should worked thoroughly and well fertilized with either rich compost or a good general garden fertilizer. Space plants to stand 24-30” apart. Harvest for cut flowers when rays begin to open. For seed heads cut with stalks attached and hang to dry. Remove seed when thoroughly dry. Excellent for birds.
