How to Plant
WHEN TO PLANT CHINESE LANTERN SEEDS
Sow in the
Spring after all threat of frost has passed – if there is a potential of frost,
use a cold frame for this variety. In very warm zones, 8-10, Fall planting of
Chinese Lanterns is also an option. You can also start them indoors, in late
Winter or early Spring.
WHERE TO PLANT CHINESE LANTERN SEEDS
moist, well-draining soil is optimal for Chinese Lanterns. Richer soils may
cause a faster spread than is ideal for this variety, so there are benefits to
growing this in more moderate soil. Chinese lanterns prefer Full Sun but will
tolerate Partial Shade. However, in warmer climates, like zones 8-10, Partial
Shade is better.
HOW TO PLANT CHINESE LANTERN SEEDS
seeds directly onto the surface of the soil, and compress. Do not cover your
seeds, as they will require sunlight to germinate. Chinese Lanterns are a
prolific seeder, so keep that in mind as you select your site. This variety
takes notoriously long to germinate, if 3-4 weeks.
HOW TO CARE FOR CHINESE LANTERN
essential you keep the soil moist for Chinese Lanterns. If the plants become
leggy, it’s alright to cut them back so they can start fresh. Once they die
back at the end of the season, cut the growth back down all the way to the
surface of the soil.

skills such as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, watering, light
intensity, proper use of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides,

factors are totally out of the sellers control, and germination and growing
results are the buyer’s responsibility and risk.
