Before Planting: Begin Nemophila seeds indoors in peat pots six to eight weeks before setting them outdoors.

Watering: Water Nemophila frequently to keep the soil moist.

Fertilizer: There is no need to fertilize since Nemophila often is grown as wildflowers.

Days to Maturity: In hotter climates, Nemophila will bloom midspring, but in cooler climates it will bloom through the summer.

Harvesting: To harvest seeds for future planting, cut off the heads of the plants after blooming and dry them in a paper bag to use the following spring.
