    How to Plant Violet Dames Rocket

    About Dames Rocket

    This classic flower is, unfortunately, not as well-known as it should be. Not only is it beautiful offering loose clusters of attractive, fragrant, pinkish-purple to white four-petaled flowers, but it is very easy to grow from seed. Dame's Rocket is also very resilient and can be successfully planted in both sun and shade.

    When to Plant Dames Rocket Seeds

    Sow seeds in Spring, after the threat of frost has passed. Dame's Rocket is one of the few varieties that can thrive, even with a Summer planting.

    Where to Plant Dames Rocket Seeds

    Dame's Rocket prefers moist, well-drained soil in Full-Sun conditions, though will tolerate Partial Shade.

    How to Plant Dames Rocket Seeds

    Direct sow seeds via broadcast onto the surface of the soil. Compress firmly, but do not cover - Dame's Rocket requires sunlight to germinate.

    How to Care for Dames Rocket

    Dame's Rocket thrives with little need for care or maintenance. However, it can be a very prolific seeder that can overtake other nearby varieties. Control the spread of seed by cutting faded stems down to the base.

for an large area to cover

I have a part shade area in the back of our property. I sprinkled the seeds over the large area and the seeds all took! I can't wait to see them blossom next year!
