Sow my adonis

Sow in September - the winter cold helping for a good seed germination - for flowering as early as May, or between March and May, for a bloom starting in June.

Water my adonis

Water regularly 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 !
