How to Plant

Planting in the Garden:

  • Select a location in full sun with good rich moist organic, well-drained soil.
  • Prepare the bed by turning the soil under to a depth of 6-12, inches removing any debris, and lightly raking as level as possible.
  • The addition of organic matter (leaf mold, compost, well-rotted manure) benefits all gardens and is essential in recently constructed neighborhoods.
  • Plant on a cloudy day or in late afternoon to reduce transplant shock.
  • Dig a hole for each plant, approximately 12-14 inches apart large enough to amply accommodate the root ball.
  • Unpot the plant and gently loosen the root ball with your hands to encourage good root growth.
  • Place the top of the root ball even with the level of the surrounding soil. Fill with soil to the top of the root ball. Press soil down firmly with your hand.
  • Use the plant tag as a location marker.
  • Water well.
  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating.
  • Mulches also help retain soil moisture and maintain even soil temperatures. For annuals an organic mulch of shredded leaves lends a natural look to the bed and will improve the soil as it breaks down in time. Always keep mulches off a plant’s stems to prevent possible rot.
  • Plants need about 1 inch of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It's best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
  • Until plants become established, some protection from extreme winds and direct, hot sunlight may be necessary. Good air movement is also important.
  • After new growth appears, a light fertilizer may be applied. Keep granular fertilizers away from the plant crown and foliage to avoid burn injury. Use low rates of a slow release fertilizer, as higher rates may encourage root rots.
  • Remove spent flower heads to keep plants flowering until fall.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
  • Remove plants after they are killed by frost in fall to avoid disease issues the following year.
  • Scaevola is an excellent choice for hanging baskets and window boxes.
  • Scaevola can tolerate drought, but should be kept evenly moist for more continuous bloom.
  • Scaevola is very heat resistant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful! I planted these in hanging baskets and placed them in places that get the most sun in my shady yard. They performed well and are still going strong and it's November. I'll definately buy them again. They look just like the picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need these I order these every year from Burpee & plan to try their other colors next time. I use them in hanging baskets & pots. Like the other reviewer said, they tolerate heat very well. They need water, fertilizer once or twice & that's about it. It's almost October & they are still a healthy green color with a ton of purple flowers. They will fill out a container on their own but they also work with other flowers that spill over the sides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hanging baskets!! I ordered these plants for the first time this year. They still look great even in the heat of late summer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scaevola Fancy I placed about three plants per hanging basket early in our growing season. By mid-summer the baskets were filled with gorgeous blooms. Neighbors were constantly asking about where to purchase my baskets. Easy to grow & blooms beautifully with minimal care. I fertilized only twice with organic fertilizer.
