Gaillardia Growing Instructions Print

Gaillardia

Select a site that drains quickly and is in full sun at least six hours a day.
Broadcast the Gaillardia seeds on the pots surface by hand when the day temperature begins to hold at 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
You will thin the seedlings to the proper distance in a later step. Cover the seeds with a 1/8-inch layer of topsoil.
provide gentle irrigation until germination. Water the seeds at planting to a depth of 1 to 2 inches. Continue to maintain the area irrigated until germination. Seedlings appear within 45 days, but it might take as few as 15 days for the baby blanketflowers to sprout.
Feed the developing plants a low-nitrogen fertilizer, such as a 5-10-10 analysis. Irrigate established Gaillardia to the root zone when the plants begin to wilt. These plants thrive in dry environments.
