Moss Rose Help
I apologize if this post in on the wrong section, I did my best to find the most "suitable" category.
I will be planting my first batch of Moss Rose, I am new to gardening and I have a couple of questions, I hope you guys share your expertise with me. I will be planting them under my pepper plants (next month I harvest my first batch), I have my pepper plants on 8" pots and I would like to add some color, plus after some research, Moss Rose is super tough, plus I really fell in love with this flower.
I've not even opened the packet but it sounds like the seeds are extremely tiny, perhaps like oregano.
1.- How many seeds should I plant? I don't want to kill my pepper plants.
2.- How much will I get from 1 seed? Enough to fill up 1 pot?
3.- How long will the root be at its maximum? This will tell me if I plant them directly into the pepper pot, or transplant from smaller pots.
4.- My pepper plants have aphids and miners. I do take care of them, but they always return, I have the population controlled, no chemicals, I just knock them down with water. Will those little buggers affect my moss rose?
5.- The packet says "minimal watering", I like on arid/crazy hot climate so I water my peppers a lot. Will too much water kill the moss rose? Based that it only needs little moisture?
6.- I fertilize my peppers every weekend. Miracle Grow for Tomato plants and vegetables. Will this affect my moss rose?
7.- Packet says to start planting on March-June, can I start now? I'm very excited! Hehe. :P
I know its a lot, but I am barely learning. I deeply thank you for your time!
