Annual Baby’s Breath


How to Sow

Direct sow seeds in well drained soil in full sun after danger of frost. Baby’s Breath can tolerate a pH of 6.5 to 7.5.
Prepare the soil by removing weeds and working organic matter into the top 6-8 inches of soil; then level and smooth.
Most plants respond well to soils amended with organic matter. Compost is a wonderful form of organic matter with a good balance of nutrients and an ideal pH level. It can be added to your planting area at any time. If compost is not available, top dress the soil after planting with 1-2 inches of organic mulch, which will begin to breakdown into compost. After the growing season, a soil test will indicate what soil amendments are needed for the following season.

Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating.
Use mulch. Mulches help retain soil moisture and maintain even soil temperatures. For annuals, an organic mulch of shredded leaves lends a natural look to the bed and will improve the soil as it breaks down in time. Always keep mulches off a plant’s stems to prevent possible rot.
Water as needed. It is important to not overwater Baby’s Breath as it is susceptible to root rots.
Remove spent flower heads to keep plants flowering until fall.
Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
Remove plants after they are killed by frost in fall to avoid disease issues the following year.
