How to grow
When growing Carthamus from seed outdoors it should be planted at a depth of 6mm in light soil of pH 6 to 7 in the early spring, before the last frost of the season. When growing Safflower from seeds indoors they should be sown in peat pots about 8 weeks before they are ready to be transplanted in mid-spring. Safflower seedlings should be planted out with a spacing of 15 to 20cm in a sunny part of the garden.
