Growing

They dislike being transplanted, so sow seeds directly in the garden in the fall or early spring.

Harvesting

Harvest flowers when fully open. Vase life is generally 1 week, especially if you add preservative to the water. Use the pods fresh or dried in bouquets; dried ones last almost indefinitely. To dry, simply hang upside down in a warm, dry place out of bright light for 2 weeks.
