This is a flower that is new to the homestead. We have brought it in to increase pollinators.
We started these in the greenhouse until they were about 3 inches tall then moved them out. They can be direct sowed, either in rows or spread like grass seed and raked in.
Harvesting is simple if you chose, simply pick the flower. Leaving them to grow in the garden is a better choice though as they draw in the pollinators.
These are so very new to us I will have more info as we gain experience with them.
