Aster Pompon Blue is an annual so it grows quickly from Aster seeds. It is easy and fast to grow in the sunny garden and does best in moist, well-drained soil.
Pompon Blue is wilt-tolerant, but all Asters do better if grown in different soil each year, so for subsequent plantings, change the location a bit. Deadhead Aster flowers to extend the bloom season even longer and keep the flowers coming back.
Start Aster seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last expected frost. Press the flowers to seed into the soil and lightly cover it. Transplant Aster plants outdoors after frost danger has passed.
