Aster Care

Hi All,

I have transplanted 3 of my Aster's into a 25 gallon bucket today. I am wondering what to do with the extra flower starts on them. They look like they could go into bloom but I don't know if I should pinch them off? Any suggestions? Thanks!
Happy gardening! :-()

Re: Aster Care

Mine are not ready to bloom yet. My first time trying asters from seed. The plants do look healthy so I'm expecting great things from them.lol I'm growing the Pavlova dark bue.

Re: Aster Care

Well, they're sure not running a race. But I think they are close to sending out blooms.

Re: Aster Care

Here is a photo of some more Asters we grew along with a Borage. I think these have nicer blooms on it :-()
