How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 10-12 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Seed is slow to start; bottom watering is recommended until plants emerge. Seedlings do not look silver when very young but color up as they mature.
Cut foliage is prone to wilting in the heat, so harvest during the coolest part of the day and place directly into water to rest for a few hours before arranging. Stems will last 7-10 days in the vase.
