Godetia are grown from seeds. Godetia seeds can be directly seeded into your flower garden, or started indoors four to six weeks before the last frost date in your area. Sow seeds early in the season, and cover lightly with 1/8" of fine garden or potting soil.

Ideal plant spacing is 16" -20". Godetia plants do not like to be crowded.

How to Grow Godetia Plants:

Grow Godetia in full sun. Plants need lots for sun, or they will grow slowly. They grow well in average to rich soil. Mix in compost when planting. Keep the soil moist, not wet. Add a general purpose fertilizer when planting them, then once a month after that.

Godetia is easy to grow. As wildflowers, they require little care. In the home garden, mulch around them to help retain soil moisture, and to keep the weeds down.

Flowers bloom early to mid summer. Taller varieties may require staking.

Godetia are good re-seeders. Plant them where they can drop their seeds and grow undisturbed for years. If you allow them to reseed in a location, you will likely need to thin new plants in the spring.

Insect and Disease:

Insect and disease are not a common  problem.  Use insecticides, repellents, and fungicides, as needed.
