- Godetia plants are grown from seeds.
- Directly sow Godetia seeds into your flower garden, or sow seeds in pots or trays indoors, four to six weeks before the last frost date in your area.
- Outdoors, sow seeds early in the season, and cover lightly with 1/8" of fine garden or potting soil.
- Ideal plant spacing is 16" -20".
- Godetia plants do not like to be crowded.
- Godetia are good re-seeders.
- Plant them where they can drop their seeds and grow undisturbed for years.
- If you allow them to reseed in a location, you will likely need to thin new plants in the spring.
- Insect and disease are not a common problem.
- Use insecticides, repellents, and fungicides, as needed.
- Pruning First, azaleas should be pruned in a natural fashion as they are not well suited for formal styles of pruning.
- Trying to prune an azalea bush so that is has straight edges and is box shaped (as would be seen if cut with hedge clippers) will result in spotty flowering and splotchy growth of branches.
- Instead, when pruning azaleas, use pruning shears to cut individual branches at the proper spot.
- Next, think about why you are trimming your azaleas.
- Is it to create a better shape plant or to maintain size or to rejuvenate the azalea plant?
