GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:
For fall sowing, no stratification needed. For spring planting, a 30 day cold stratification is needed to break the seeds' dormancy. Plant New England Aster seeds in a location with full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. Sow the seeds 1/8 inch deep and space the plants 18-24 inches apart, with rows spaced 2-3 feet apart. Water moderately, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged. Asters prefer a soil pH between 5.5 and 7.0.
