Plant Bachelor Buttons in full sun to partial shade, in fertile well drained soil.
They adapt to most soil types quite well. Space new container grown
Bachelor Button plants 12"
- 14" apart.
Centaurea montana freely self seeds. To
prevent spreading or over crowding, deadhead plants after
flowering. Flowers are good for dried flower arrangements.
Perennial Bachelor Button seed can be started in a cold frame in small fiber pots to
prevent root damage when transplanted outdoors. Or purchase
pre-started plants at your local Garden Center.
