    How to Plant Annual Baby's Breath

    When to Plant Baby's Breath Seeds

    Plant in Spring after the last frost of the season has passed when sowing outdoors. When starting indoors, sow 6-8 weeks before the last frost, then transfer outdoors. Continue to sow every 2 to 3 weeks until the end of the blooming season for a consistent flush of flowers.

    Where to Plant Baby's Breath Seeds

    Best in locations with full sun (6-8 hours of sun per day), and well-draining soil that is not too acidic. Annual Baby's Breath will tolerate partial shade (4-6 hours of sun per day).

    How to Plant Baby's Breath Seeds

    Sow directly onto the surface of the soil via broadcasting, or sow seeds evenly in rows 8-10 inches apart. Do not bury the seed. Keep seeds moist, but not soaked, until germination.

    How to Care for Baby's Breath

    As annuals, these flowers will grow quickly and bloom quickly before subsequently dying off. As a result, they are easily cared for. Annual Baby's Breath is very tolerant of drought and of subpar soils or sunlight. Debris from dead plants may need to be removed to keep a less cluttered garden area after several plantings.
