Balsam seeds can be started indoors 6 weeks before your last frost. Surface sow the seeds in containers with pre-moistened soil. Do not cover them. They need sunlight to germinate. Moisten soil before sowing seeds on the surface. The seeds should start germinating within four days. Keep the seedlings well-watered. You can plant them outdoors after your last frost when the soil has warmed. Space your seedlings 12 inches apart. Balsam’s colourful flowers light up the garden all summer. It’s easy to grow and will reseed itself for years of enjoyment.
