Asters are undemanding in regard to the cultivation conditions and virtually everybody may grow it from seeds. Aster seeds are sown under covers in early spring. Plants grown that way will bloom a couple of weeks earlier than those sown directly to the ground in May. Transplant seedlings outside in the second half of May after the risk of frosts has passed. 22 x 40 cm spacings would be optimal for the proper growth of these plants. Asters need a sunny site with soil rich in nutrients and water in order to grow and bloom abundantly.
