In the area I live in, I want an easy gardening project for me and my kids this summer. I have a full sun area ready to go, just need plants to put in it.
You can plant baby's breath now in that location. Just make sure the soil drains well. Here are some easy plants for kids that should help as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/children/fun-plants-for-kids.htm
Will this plant grow in shade?
Gypsophila is considered a sun-lover. Here is an article about them: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/babys-breath/growing-babys-breath-flowers.htm
I want to bring my baby's breath plants indoors, as the planters are special to me. They contain some of my mother's ashes and baby's breath were her favorite.

You can try bringing them indoors, I have seen a reference to growing them indoors for flowers during the winter, but I think it most likely that they will die back for the winter. But if you gather seeds and replant them in the planters in the spring, you could keep them going in the same containers almost indefinitely.
I am a beginner at gardening. Today, I visited my father at the cemetery and really adored the roses and baby's breath on the bouquet that I bought and realized that I should have these plants in my garden. Can I use the cuttings that I can buy at a flower shop to propagate baby's breath and roses? If yes, can you teach me the proper way of planting them? Thank you. By the way, I am from the Philippines, a tropical country. Thank you so much! Happy gardening! :-)
I am sorry, you would not be able to propagate roses or baby's breath from fresh cut flowers.
Starting a cutting garden can be easily done both with seeds and plants.
Here are a few links to help you get started.
Planning an Oct 1st wedding. Will baby's breath bloom till fall in S.E. Michigan?
Annual Baby's Breath will bloom one time, mid summer.
Perennial Baby's Breath will bloom for a longer period--generally also beginning around mid summer.
Depending upon the growing conditions and weather, the bloom time could go into the late summer or early fall.
You could cut and dry the Baby's Breath for your Oct 1st event.
I want to grow baby's breath for my daughters June 17 wedding. Wonder when I should sew the seeds to have flowers for that day
Look for annual Baby's Breath seeds, you can start indoors or direct sow outdoors after last frost.
It is very difficult to time blooms as it depends greatly on growing conditions.
Read the seed packets; they will have a range of time from germination to maturity.
Avoid a perennial seed, as they can take up to 3 to 5 years to bloom.
You may also be able to find plants at the garden center that would give you a head start on growing.
I would also encourage you to not stress to terribly much; Baby's Breath is readily available at floral shops and is relatively inexpensive.
If your garden plants don't quite preform you can still have the beauty of Baby's Breath.
Hello I recently planted baby's breath flower seeds around late January but they haven't grown a lot in 3 weeks. It is about Feb 17 now and the seedlings are still small and some are beginning to turn yellow. I live around Oxnard, California, and the growing zone around where I live is 10. The soil in the tiny container where I planted it is a little soggy due to rain and there has been some frost and low temps of 35.5 degrees Fahrenheit. I bought some fertilizer to help the seedlings grow but should I wait for the temperature to rise or should I put the fertilizer on anyway?
Wait till the weather warms up and the seedlings are actively growing to fertilize.
The yellow leaves may be due to the cooler temps. Here is more:
