  • Asters prefer climates with cool, moist summers, especially cool night temperatures.
  • Select a site with full sun to partial sun.
  • Soil should be moist, well-drained, and average to humus-rich.
  • Plany asters in early- to mid-spring.
  • Fertilize soil prior to planting.
  • While the plant can be grown from seed, germination can be uneven.
  • You can start the seeds indoors during the winter by sowing seeds in pots or flats and keeping them in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 weeks.
  • After 4 to 6 weeks, put the seeds in a sunny spot.
  • Set seeds one inch deep.

  • Space asters 1 to 3 feet apart, depending on the type.
  • Water plants in well.
  • Add mulch after planting to keep soil cool and prevent weeds.
  • If you re replanting shoots, use vigorous, young shoots to ensure best growth.

Harvesting: Always harvest your seeds when it s dry; around mid-day or early afternoon on a sunny day is ideal. Try not to collect them when they re damp. If you can t avoid it, lay them out separately on newspaper to dry out before putting them together in paper bags.

  • Add a thin layer of compost with a 2–inch layer of mulch around the plants every spring.
  • If you receive less than 1 inch of rain a week, remember to water your plants regularly during the summer, however many asters are moisture-sensitive, if your plants have too much moisture or too little moisture, they will often lose their lower foliage or not flower well.
  • Keep an eye out for any stressed plants and try a different watering method if your plants are losing flowers.
  • Stake the tall variesties in order to keep them upright and remember to pinch the young shoots to encourage bushiness.
  • Cut asters back in winter after the foliage has died.
  • Divide every 2 to 3 years in the spring to maintain your plant s vigor and flower quality.
