Grower Information

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