How to grow annual Chinese aster moonstone from seed

Growing annual asters from seed is not difficult. It is preferable to start the seeds in late winter until early spring in module trays within a greenhouse or on a windowsill. While you can direct sow them in April, we have never tried this method and can therefore not recommend it. Covering the seeds is not necessary. Seedlings emerge quickly, but the plants grow rather slowly. You can plant them out from the end of April, once the plants have been hardened off. Staking is required to support the large flowers. To prevent Fusarium Wilt, rotate their location in the garden. The plants start to flower around 100 days after sowing and will continue to produce flowers until the beginning of autumn.

The flowers make excellent cut flowers due to their strength. Pick them when the flowers have opened, but you cannot see the yellow heart of the flower yet. Picking the flowers too early might cause them to wilt. When you pick flowers from the garden at the right stage, they easily last for 10 days!
