Growing gomphrena from seed is rewarding for gardeners of all levels. Add color to your garden on a budget by growing gomphrena from seed!
Gomphrena seeds are light yellow in color and tear drop shaped, with a white tuft on the end.
Starting seeds indoors
Start gomphrena seeds six to eight weeks before the last frost in your area. This will give them a head start on the growing season so you can have blooms sooner!
Use a seed tray
Scatter the seeds on the surface of a sterilized seed tray filled with seed-starting soil mix, or plant them individually in small containers
Direct sow seeds
If you want to direct sow your gomphrena seeds, wait until after the last danger of frost.
Planting in your garden
If you buy gomphrena at the store, or you have seedlings in trays that have been hardened off, wait until after your last frost date to transplant them into the garden.
Gomphrena is a cut and come again plant, so harvest flowers frequently to keep the blooms coming.
