How to grow
How To Grow Coreopsis From Seed: Directly sow Coreopsis seeds outdoors in late fall into a prepared seed bed. Soil should be loosened and weed free. Press the flower seeds into the soil and lightly cover it. Keep the seed moist until germination.
Outdoors, grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Tickseed Coreopsis care includes deadheading the spent flowers and dividing the clumps every 2 - 3 years.
