For the earliest blooms, start the Gilia Capitata seed indoors 4 - 8 weeks before the last expected frost. Transplant the Globe Gilia seedlings outside when frost danger has passed in a sunny location. For areas with a long growing season, the Gilia Capitata seeds can be started in a prepared seedbed.
Sow the flower seeds on the surface, pressing them firmly into the soil. When the Gilia seedlings are 1 - 2 inches in height, thin to the strongest plant 8 - 12 inches apart and replant the thinned seedlings. Globe Gilia plants prefer sunny, hot, and dry conditions and do not require much water.
