    When To Plant

    Chinese Houses seeds do best if planted directly outdoors in the Spring.

    Where To Plant

    The Chinese Houses only needs soil that is ordinary and moist, but well drained. They also do well in full sun or partial shade.

    How To Plant

    The seeds should not be planted deeply; they just need to be compressed into the soil, as they need light to germinate.

    If planting in rows, then plant the seeds 12” apart.

    How To Care For the Chinese Houses

    These varieties of seeds generally germinate in about 2-3 months.

    Chinese Houses should be watered regularly, but they can tolerate dry conditions. It is not necessary to fertilize.

    It generally takes about 120 days for the Chinese Houses to bloom after the seed is planted.
