Press the seed lightly into the surface of the soil; keep consistently moist but not soaked until germination, which should occur within 7-10 days. To start the seed indoors 6-8 weeks before frost, surface sow in a flat and keep it lightly moist until germination. Transplant seedlings outdoors after the last frost or when they can safely be handled.
Camilia balsam flower mix
Balsam is an annual flowering plant that originated from Southeast Asia.
It grows to about 1-2 feet in height. Its stems are soft and fleshy while its leaves are long, shiny and pointed. The flowers are very similar to gardenias, roses or camellias. Balsam plants are like other from the impatiens family wherein the seedpods explode, scattering seeds when touched thus the name "touch-me-not".
