Sowing instructions: Seeds are very tiny and will not look like THOUSANDS of seeds. Mix with sand, potting soil, or cornmeal to acheive an amount of matieral to spread over loosened, weed free soil. Rake lightly to barely cover the seed. Irrigation will be needed if spring rain is not conisistent during the three weeks after sowning (soil needs to remain slighty moist durring gerimation). After germination, plants will grow according to moisture levels. Plants will perform best with a half inch of water bi-weekly, either from rain or a sprinkler, through July. These species are adapted to summer drought and will be smaller and have a shorter bloom time if never irrigated after germination.
