growing cockscomb flowers

Zone 20837 | Anonymous added on March 27, 2018 | Answered

I have read in planting cockscomb seeds to use just 3 or 4 in one place. I can' imagine that is near enough since they are so tiny. I have also read the term sprinkle..so what'll I do? thanks for any info Don 301-349-2197

Don't judge a seed by its size. You generally want to space the (mature) plants 8-12 inches apart. If the directions say sow 3 to 4 seeds, they mean 3 to 4 seeds per hole. When the seedlings develop a second set of leaves, you'll want to thin each group of seedlings down to 1 plant per hole.
