    Propagation; Blanket flower are grown from seeds. Sow seeds directly into your flower garden, or start seeds indoors, for transplanting later. We recommend a heated germination mat for indoor starts. If you live in a warmer climate, you can plant them in the Autumn, and they will likely bloom the first spring. For colder areas, expect a bloom in the second spring.

    Sow Blanket flower seeds early in the season and cover lightly with 1/8" of fine garden or potting soil. Or, broadcast spread them over an area, and lightly rake them into the soil. Seeds can take up to 3 weeks to sprout.

    Ideal plant spacing is 14" -16".  Thin or transplant seedlings, if needed, when they reach 2". They will tolerate a little crowding.

    Blanket flower can also be propagated by plant division.

    How to Grow Blanket flower; Blanket Flower are very easy to grow, they like full sun and prefer loose soil that drains well. Add a general purpose fertilizer when planting them, then once a month after that.  These drought tolerant plants seldom need to be watered.  They will do well in mid-summer's heat.

    Once your Blanketflower are established, they should grow well with few problems.  They will grow on their own with little care or attention, just make sure to view them often to enjoy their brilliant blooms. Or, watch butterflies that are attracted to them.

    While most varieties of Blanket Flowers grow 2' - 3', there are some 4' varieties. Taller varieties may need staking. Deadhead flowers to promote continuous blooms. For healthy, thriving plants, dig up and divide every 2 -3 years in early spring. Flowers Bloom: Summer to Autumn
