    How to Plant Bicolor Mix Four O'Clocks

    About Four O'Clocks

    Four O'Clock's, so named because they typically bloom late in the afternoon, are among the most colorful, fragrant, and robust of all flowers that can be grown from seed. They're very versatile too, as the seeds of the Four O'Clock can be sown directly into the soil or into pots or other containers such as barrels. Plant Four O'Clock seeds in the spring for late summer/early autumn blooms.

    When to Plant Four O'Clock Seeds

    Direct sow in the Spring, after the threat of frost has passed.

    Where to Plant Four O'Clock Seeds

    Four O'Clock's do best in Full Sun, and can tolerate Partial Shade, but may grow spindly. They thrive in rich, well-draining, and loamy soil that tests as neutral to slightly acidic in pH.

    How to Plant Four O'Clock Seeds

    Nick the seed coating and soak your Four O'Clock seeds overnight the day before planting. Cover seeds with 1/4 inch of soil, spacing 12 inches apart. Then thin to 2 feet apart.

    How to Care for Four O'Clocks

    When the plant is still early in it's growth, pinch back the main shoot to encourage bushier growth. Four O'Clock's require little maintenance, and simply watering to keep the soil consistently moist. Plants will die back after frost, but return in the subsequent Spring!

Excellent germination

Approx 30 seeds in the packet and nearly all are coming up within 5 days.
I started them in some miracle grow seed starter mix in 4 inch plastic pots with rice hulls at the bottom for drainage. Barely covered the seeds with soil, and topped the pots off with more rice hulls to prevent the dirt from moving around during watering. Left them outside for germination.
5 days later 99% of the seeds have 2 true leaves, I suspect they will all be ready to transplant in a few weeks. Incredibly pleased with all my seeds from Eden Brothers.
