    How to Plant Tiny Tim Alyssum

    When to Plant Alyssum Seeds

    Plant outdoors directly after the last frost of the season or start indoors 5-6 weeks before last frost.

    Where to Plant Alyssum Seeds

    Plant in full sun where available (6-8 hours of sun per day), Alyssum will tolerate partial shade (4-6 hours of sun per day). Plant in well-draining, acidic soils. Alyssum is tolerant of rocky and sandy soils. Grows well on slopes and in rocky garden environments that may not suitable for other landscape plants.

    How to Plant Alyssum Seeds

    Lightly press 4-8 seeds into the surface of the soil no deeper than a 1/8th of an inch. Seeds should not be buried, as exposing seeds to sunlight is needed for germination. Alyssum is a spreading plant, keep 6-8 inches apart for best results.

    How to Care for Alyssum

    Alyssum is a low-maintenance plant. Water sparingly but deeply. Alyssum roots do best when allowed to dry out a bit between waterings, particularly in a partial shade environment. Consistently damp or soggy soil will make the plant prone to root rot. Particularly hot summers may require more frequent watering as needed. Light pruning and deadheading of the plant can allow for an additional flush of bloom throughout the season. Despite being annuals, Alyssum will self-sow and return each year.

Cute tiny white flowers!

After planting more than 20 types of flower seeds in my yard this spring, TINY TIM ALYSSUM was the first to jump out of the ground and then pop out those adorable white flowers! It is a joy to see those little faithful flowers every day as I work on the other, more difficult, plants.I plan to plant many more next spring!

Fast growth and blossoming already

I planted these on a bare patch by the front walkway that I built up into a small berm. Scattered the minuscule seeds and was skeptical they would take. They exploded after a few weeks. Just keep the soil moist and nature will do the rest. In a few weeks, you'll have delightful little blossoms. Alyssum are supposed to have a sweet honey smell, but I don't get that yet (maybe it's too early?) I hope they keep flowering throughout the summer.

Tiny Tim Alyssum

Reading that one barely needs to do anything to the soil for these little beauties to bloom, I went ahead and laid a thin layer of top soil and put the seeds which are the size of strawberry seeds, in an empty salt shaker and went to town! They are planted under an oranger tree. The seeds sprouted tiny green sprigs within 2 weeks and a month later I have the beginnings of the white flowers. I cant wait for the full sea of white to explode! Seem to be very hardy thus far.
