Posted on

Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segmentwe're going to talk all about how to grow asters.

One of my favorite cut flowers andmy favorite garden plants.

Now asters come in many shapes and many sizes and it's thefall and this one is done blooming.

They grow very similar to chrysanthemums so you canget one start and it'll just keep multiplying and you'll get more and more starts out ofit.

And you can start them by seed in the spring and put them out whenever it's notfreezing too hard or you can just take the divisions and start them in the spring aswell.

They're very hardy, even in cold climates so there's many different types of astersand they're all gorgeous.

Asters like full hot sun and good drainage so never let themget too wet but water them once especially when they're in bloom.

And they're a greatplant for that when the blooms are fading and they don't look good, you can hack themback half the plant down and they'll grow again and a lot of times you'll get summerand then fall blooms again.

They're a great garden addition.
