How to grow

How To Grow Celosia From Seed: Celosia seeds are very tiny. For areas with a long growing season, Plume Plant flower seed can be directly sown into your flower garden in prepared soil after frost season has passed.

For cooler areas with shorter growing seasons, start the Plume Plant seeds 4- 6 weeks before the last expected frost. Press the Celosia seeds into the soil but do not cover them. The flower seeds need to stay moist, and require warm soil to germinate. Pinch back the early blooms to encourage more branching.
