Sowing The Seed
Coreopsis Lance Leaved are best established directly outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Simply clear the area of all unwanted plant life, turning the soil, or replacing it with new soil. Scatter the circular seeds directly to the surface of the soil. Leave the seeds slightly covered with 1/16" of earth, as they will require light to germinate properly.
Coreopsis will enjoy an area that receives full sunlight for the majority of the day. The plants thrive in temperatures of roughly 68F or higher and aren't too picky on soil conditions. Although they do prefer a soil that is well draining. To improve drainage, you can always add a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. Water daily until germination has occurred.
Germination & Growth
The seeds will begin to show signs of life within as little as 7 to 10 days after sowing. The plants themselves will reach a mature height of roughly 18 to 36 inches tall and can spread 1 to 2 feet in width. Spacing the plants 12 to 18 inches apart is recommended. When the plants begin to flower, you will enjoy an explosion of golden-yellow flowers that will attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden.
