Planting Instructions

  1. Timing: Sow Evergreen Candytuft seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date or directly outdoors in early spring or fall.
  2. Soil Preparation: Choose well-draining soil with a slightly alkaline to neutral pH. Iberis sempervirens prefers soils that are not too rich to avoid leggy growth.
  3. Sowing Depth: Plant seeds 1/8 inch deep in moist soil. Lightly cover with soil and keep the planting area consistently moist until germination.
  4. Sunlight: Provide full sun to partial shade. Evergreen Candytuft thrives in bright, sunny locations but can tolerate some afternoon shade.
  5. Spacing: Space plants about 12-18 inches apart to allow for proper air circulation and growth.

Growing and Care

  • Watering: Water regularly during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, water as needed to keep the soil evenly moist.
  • Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring to support healthy growth and abundant flowering.
  • Pruning: Trim back spent flowers and prune lightly after blooming to maintain a compact shape and encourage new growth.
  • Pest and Disease Management: Monitor for common garden pests and diseases. Iberis sempervirens is relatively resistant but may occasionally attract aphids or experience root rot if overwatered.
