HOW TO GROW BLUE ASTER TALL FROM SEEDS
Before planting, compost should be mixed into the soil. Asters can have uneven germination when grown from seed. You can start growing seeds indoors by sowing seeds in pots or flats and holding them in the refrigerator for four to six weeks during the winter. It is during these colder weather conditions that seeds germinate. Seeds should be planted one inch deep in a sunny location in your home. After the danger of frost has passed, young plants should be grown outdoors. Depending on the type and size of the plant, you should space asters one to three feet apart.
CARE FOR BLUE ASTER TALL AFTER GERMINATION
Make sure plants have plenty of water when they are planted. To prevent weeds and keep the soil cool, mulch the soil after planting. Water your plants regularly if you receive less than an inch of rain per week during the summer. However, the majority of asters are moisture-sensitive, and if they get too much or too little moisture, they will often not flower or lose their lower leaves. Watch for stressed-out plants and try a different watering method if your plants are losing flowers. Encourage tall varieties to prevent them from falling over.
BLUE ASTER TALL HEALTH BENEFITS AND USES
Roots of the plant were used in soups, and the young leaves were boiled lightly and eaten as greens. Historically, Iroquois used a combination of aster, bloodroot, and other medicinal plants as laxatives. Topically, aster root was used by the Ojibwa to treat headaches. Asters and goldenrods attract many pollinating insects in the late season. Birds and other small animals depend on them for food and shelter during the winter, feasting on seeds and hiding in dried stalks.
