Dwarf Polka Dot Mix Seeds are flower seeds that are very easy to grow, making them perfect for beginner gardeners or children gardens. The Cornflower seeds are large which make them easy to handle for younger children, and germination is quick and bountiful, creating a fun mixture of colors. The variety of colors include anything from white and lavender to blue and pink. It is best to use a mass planting in order to get a good appreciation of the vast number of colors. The blooms are very good for dried flower arrangements, as they don't lose their color when they die. They are annual flowers and tend to have a height of between 24-30 inches. They're additionally appealing to gardeners because they're resistant to deer, which is ideal in certain parts of America and other parts of the world. They bloom from late spring to early fall, and can grow in direct sunlight or sometimes even partial shade. The soil needs to be well-drained and when planted they need to have a temperature of approximately 65 degrees Fahrenheit. They have a germination period of about 14-28 days. Ideally, they should be sown up to a depth of a quarter of an inch. The sowing rate should be between 10-12 seeds per plant or at least 6 seeds for every foot. It is best to sow them anywhere between 6 and 12 inches apart.
