Sow my black-eyed susan vine

Prepare the soil by breaking up the clods on the top of the soil, and push the coarser elements over to the edges with a rake. The smaller the seeds, the more you need to get a finer result. Sow seeds of less than 2mm in line or on the fly. For seeds between 2 and 4 mm, sow them in line with a few centimeters space in between. Finally, sow the large seeds in a heap: dig a little hole and put 2 to 5 seeds in it. Cover the seeds 2-3 times their height, add some sand if your soil is very heavy.

Water my black-eyed susan vine

Water regulary in the first weeks. Try to avoid watering on sunny afternoons to minimize the amount of moisture lost to evaporation. If your plant is in a pot, check the top soil in the pot either by looking at it or touching it with your finger. In any case, if it hasn’t rained in a month, water !
