How to sow asters for seedlings correctly

Asters are one of the most popular flowers that decorate gardens with their bright and delicate colors. They can also be planted in open ground, but the seedling method allows for earlier flowering and better decorative qualities.

In fact, sowing asters is quite a simple task. You will definitely get strong and high-quality seedlings if you follow the tips shared by Good News.

Quality of seeds

The first step to healthy seedlings is quality seeds. Choose well-known, trusted producers and make sure the seeds are fresh. If you order seeds online, read reviews and choose reputable stores.

Soil

Asters need light and well-drained soil. For best results, you can buy a ready-made seedling mix, but you can also prepare it yourself. You will need fine humus and perlite or coconut fiber.

How to sow asters for seedlings: secrets that gardeners should know

Sowing

Make small holes in the ground 1-2 centimeters deep. Next, place one seed in each hole, cover them with a thin layer of soil, and moisten them moderately.

Place the container in a warm and bright place, but avoid direct sunlight. Usually, the optimal temperature for seed germination is around 18-21°C.

Remember to moisten the soil regularly. Avoid drying out, but also make sure that it does not become waterlogged.

Transplanting outdoors

After the first seedlings appear, make sure the plant gets enough light and start gradually increasing the humidity and temperature.

When several true and strong leaves appear, asters can be planted outdoors.
