    How to Plant Love in the Puff

    When to Plant Love in the Puff Seeds

    Direct sow seeds in the Spring when soil temperatures reach a consistent 60°F. In milder climates (Zones 8 and higher) fall planting is an option as well.

    Where to Plant Love in the Puff Seeds

    Choose well-draining soil in Full Sun conditions for Love in a Mist and Love in the Puff seeds, though they can also tolerate Partial Shade. These varieties are also a great choice when planting for borders, or to fill in bare spots in the garden.

    How to Plant Love in the Puff Seeds

    Ensure soil has a fine consistency when sowing your seeds. Sow directly onto the surface of the soil and compress, but do not cover, These seeds require sunlight to germinate. Germination can take between 14-20 days. Because of their long taproot, Love in a Mist and Love in the Puff do not transplant well, Direct sowing of these seeds is the best method.

    How to Care for Love in the Puff

    Once established, Love in a Mist and Love in the Puff require little care. Even deadheading isn't a necessity as the seedpods have aesthetic qualities and are part of the plants' charm. They are prolific reseeders though, so if you wish to prevent the spread of seeds, you can certainly deadhead once flowers fade.

Love this delicate vine

I planted these seeds a few years ago and loved the delicate leaves on the vine, and the green paper lantern puffs are such a delight! Add to a bouquet of freshly cut flowers for the perfect finishing touch (look great with zinnias and dahlias). And for an added bonus, the puffs actually will self seed and you'll have pretty little volunteers around next year!
