HOW TO GROW PINK ASTER FROM SEEDS
The best climate for asters is one that has excellent, moist summers. Aster plants should not be exposed to the midday sun when temperatures are warmer. Choose a sunny location. Loamy soil should be moist but well-drained. The Compost should be mixed into the soil before planting. Seeds can be started indoors during the winter by planting them in pots or flats and storing them in the refrigerator for four to six weeks to simulate winter dormancy. This cold weather boosts germination. Aster Seeds should be planted 1 inch deep in a sunny area of your home. After the threat of frost has passed in the spring, plant young plants outside.
CARE FOR PINK ASTER AFTER GERMINATION
The finest time to plant young asters is in the middle of spring to late summer. Asters are available in your area in the fall and can be planted as soon as they are fully grown and potted. The spacing between aster plants should be between 1 and 3 feet, depending on the type and size. Provide plants with plenty of water when they are planted. Keeping the soil cool and preventing weed growth requires mulching after planting. Bees, butterflies, and other pollinators love asters. Save an eye out for stressed plants and try a different watering method if your plants lose their flowers. Stagger tall plants for stability.
