Planting Instructions:
For most efficient growth, direct sow Basket of Gold flower seeds in late summer or autumn; it will remain dormant until spring. If started indoors, Alyssum Saxatile seeds will need to be stratified. Mix the seed with an equal amount of sand and keep it in the refrigerator for 4-6 weeks, then sow it in the surface of the soil in a flat. Keep the soil evenly moist and the temperature around 70° F. Germination should take place within 14 days. After the last chance of frost, transplant the seedlings. Basket of Gold flower seeds can also be direct sown outdoors after being stratified. :This plant is often grown among rocks, on along gravel paths or walls, or as an edging in large pots. It is very hardy and adapts to may soils, though it prefers full sun and dry or well drained soil. After the plant finishes flowering, the mat of green foliage can be left as ground cover or it can be cut back to tidy its growth; the new leaves will bloom again if the growing season is long enough. Though this plant loves hot sun, humidity will damage its growth. In regions with high heat and humidity, it grows well as an annual that can be removed after it blooms.
