How to Sow

Because Celosia seeds are small, you’ll get the best results if you sow them in containers. This allows you to use less water to keep the surface moist, and once they are growing strongly, and have one to three pairs of leaves, you can transplant them into larger containers or into the soil. Just cover the seeds – an old cake sieve is a great tool for this – and water gently but deeply. Water again as soon as the soil surface begins to dry.

    Only a few seeds grew, possibly didn’t find their happy place.
