Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips
Space 18-24 inches apart. Plant in location with at least half-day of full sun with good soil drainage and air flow. Not recommended to plant near deck's, patio's or other social locations since they attract bees. Plant at same soil level as existing container. Water well after planting. Do not fertilize when plant is in bloom. Do not cut back old flowers and stems until following spring.
The pollen on open Aster flowers often attracts bees. It is best for Asters to be sold when only a few flowers are showing color. This will reduce the amount of bees your customers have to fight off when purchasing the plants and ensures the customer of maximum home enjoyment.
