Grower Notes

Monardas can be started from 72 deep plugs planted in late summer/early fall and overwintered easily in cold frames or pot-to-pot outdoors. If planting for late spring/early summer sales, start with our larger 32-count vernalized plugs.

Monarda should be pinched back early to promote branching or delay flowering. Pinching or PGRs can be used to control height, though PGRs are not recommended for dwarf varieties.
