How to grow

To start growing farewell to spring, you will need to select a location that receives full sun or partial shade. The soil should be well-draining and rich in organic matter. You can amend the soil with compost or well-rotted manure to improve its fertility. Next, you can plant the seeds of farewell to spring directly into the soil in the early spring or fall. The seeds should be sown at a depth of about 1/8 inch and spaced about 6-12 inches apart. You can also start the seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date and transplant them outside after the danger of frost has passed. Once the seeds have germinated and the plants have started to grow, you can water them regularly, keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged. Fertilizing the plants with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks can also help to promote healthy growth and abundant flowering. As the plants grow taller, they may need some support, especially if they are exposed to strong winds. You can use stakes or a trellis to provide support and prevent the plants from falling over.
