Planting Instructions:
Growing Monarda seeds is easy and rewarding! Sow seeds 1/16" deep directly in prepared areas in the spring when temperatures begin to warm. Spread the herb seeds evenly and rake into loose topsoil. Supplemental watering is suggested if spring rains are poor. Provide additional water until the plants reach 10 - 12 inches tall. Once established, Lemon Bergamot should reseed itself. Allow flower seeds to mature completely before mowing or cutting down. Since it's an annual, it is essential that the Purple Horsemint plant is allowed to reseed itself for the following year.
