- No plant is easier or quicker to grow for masses of delightful blooms than this annual Baby s Breath plant.
- In just 6 - 8 weeks from sowing Baby s Breath seeds, you ll begin enjoying the tiny, pure-white blooms, which are set at the tips of rather stiff, very well-branched stems.
- Invaluable for bouquets and arrangements both fresh and dried, they are also a fine source of airy, misty color in the garden--particularly effective with large, brightly-colored blooms or with vertical ornamental grasses.
- If you want a steady supply of Baby s Breath flowers from spring to fall, just sow the Gypsophila seeds directly in the garden every 2 - 3 weeks as soon as the soil can be worked in spring.
- Insect and disease problems are not too common.
- If insect or disease problems occur, treat early with organic or chemical insect repellents and fungicide.
