How to grow

Choose the right location: Rocket empress candytuft prefers full sun to partial shade, and well-draining soil. Make sure the location you choose gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Prepare the soil: Before planting, prepare the soil by adding compost or other organic matter to improve drainage and fertility. Rocket empress candytuft prefers slightly acidic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Plant the seeds: Sow the seeds directly in the garden in early spring, after the last frost. Plant the seeds about ¼ inch deep and 6 inches apart. Water the seeds regularly to keep the soil moist until they germinate. Care for the plants: Once the seedlings emerge, thin them to about 12 inches apart. Water the plants regularly, but do not overwater as they can be prone to root rot. Fertilize the plants with a balanced fertilizer once a month during the growing season. Harvest the flowers: Rocket empress candytuft will bloom in late spring and early summer. Harvest the flowers by cutting them with sharp scissors or pruning shears. This will encourage the plant to produce more flowers.
