Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Aster Crego Mixed Colors is an accommodating flower, not fussy about its location, be it full sun or partial shade. Starting the seeds can be done indoors around six weeks prior to the last expected frost or directly outdoors once frost isn't a threat. A light covering of soil is all the seeds require, and consistent moisture will see them through to germination. As the seedlings develop, ensuring a spacing of 8-10 inches will give them room to flourish. Regular watering paired with a monthly dose of balanced fertilizer sets the stage for optimal growth. For a bushier plant with an abundance of flowers, consider pinching back the stem tips and removing spent blooms to extend the blooming period.
Step into a garden of color and vitality with Aster Crego Mixed Colors. As each bloom unfurls, it tells a story of nature's wonder, of days under the sun, and of starry nights under the vast sky. Begin your Aster journey, and let every petal narrate a tale of beauty and resilience.
