    How to Plant Birds Eyes Seeds

    When to Plant Birds Eyes Seeds

    Direct sow outdoors 2-3 weeks before final frost date, or cold stratify indoors for 30 days, and sow after the threat of frost has passed. If Birds Eyes seeds are sown every two weeks, you can have continuous blooms the following growing season.

    Where to Plant Birds Eyes Seeds

    Plant in Full Sun conditions, in well-draining soil. Birds Eyes doesn't need much in terms of fertilizer, and can thrive in multiple soil types.

    How to Plant Birds Eyes Seeds

    Scatter seeds onto the surface of the soil and firmly compress, but do not cover. Birds Eyes seeds require sunlight in order to germinate. Covered seeds will have a much weaker germination rate.

    How to Care for Birds Eyes

    Birds Eyes requires little care or maintenance once established. Germination can be on the longer side - 14-21 days after sowing, so you may need to be patient before you see this variety sprouting. As annuals, Birds Eyes will die all the way back with the onset of frost. Simply cut down and clear any debris, and the area will be suitable for sowing again in the Spring.
