Asters are daisy-like perennials with starry-shaped flower heads. They bring delightful color to the garden. You can find an aster for almost any garden and they have many uses, such as in borders, rock gardens, or wildflower gardens. Asters also attract butterflies to your garden! Growing Asters is easy. All Asters are yellow in the center of the flower. They are daisy-like in appearance, even though they are a member of the sunflower family. Aster seeds should germinate within 10 to 14 days. Transplant the seedlings into trays 5cm apart and grow on. Gradually acclimatise the Aster plants to outside conditions, and plant out at around 35cm apart.

Growing Instructions

Sow two seeds 1/8-inch deep in each prepared pot and place in a warm place. Mist the soil surface with water to moisten it after planting. Cover seeds kept indoors with a plastic bag to retain moisture so the pots don't require watering until after germination. Mist the soil in pots kept in a cold frame daily to retain soil moisture. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Transplant seedlings, 5cm (2") apart, to other trays when large enough to handle (always hold by a leaf, never by the stem). Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, 0.5cm (¼) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 30cm (1') apart. Water well until plants are established.

Flowers: July-October
