High Mowing Organic - Gorgeous blend of bold and pastel colors.
Snapdragons are slow growing in spring but worth the wait, as they bloom continuously through the summer, especially with trimming. One of the premium cut flowers for bouquets and arrangements. Also makes a showy border or garden bed. Start indoors 8-10 weeks ahead and set out after frost, spacing 8-10" apart. Cut when the lower third of the florets are open.
Excellent cut flower
Instructions - Start seeds indoors in a container of seed starting mix in early spring 6 to 8 weeks before the last expected frost. Dampen soil mix evenly before sowing. Sow seeds 1 inch apart, covering only with a fine dusting of the mix. Keep evenly moist but not soggy and provide a strong light source until ready to plant outdoors. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, transplant them 2 inches apart into a deeper container. After they reach 2 to 3 inches tall, gradually acclimate sturdy, well-established seedlings to outdoor conditions before transplanting them in full sun. Space seedlings 10 to 12 inches apart for best performance.
Heat and wind-resistant Chantilly adds height, color, and texture to garden beds and provides abundant gorgeous summer and bouquets. Feed and water well and keep spent flower stalks cut off for the longest bloom season. Cut stalks when 8-10 blossoms are open; do not crowd in the vase for the best, longest-lasting cut flowers. In mild climates, snapdragons can also be planted in late fall to bloom in spring with pansies, Sweet William, calendula, and Agrostemma.
