Planting And Care
Asters are easily grown from division. Aster plants do best, if divided every two to three yea Simply dig out half to two thirds of the plants, leaving the remainder in place. Then separate the portion you dug out into two sections and plant in another location or give them to a friend.
Aster seeds can also be directly seeded into your flower garden, or seeded indoors for transplanting later. We recommend planting Asters in pots and containers indoors, then transplanting the seedlings outdoors in early spring. This allows you to make the proper spacing.

How to Grow Asters
Growing asters is a simple garden chore. They may be started from seed in spring, but are most often purchased as a potted plant.
Plant into the full sun to part sun location in loamy, well-draining soil. Keep new plantings moist and continue watering until blooms cease.
Appropriate care of aster includes watering at the base and not splashing the foliage.
Getting water or fertilizer on the leaves encourages powdery mildew and other fungal diseases.
Organic mulch can hold in moisture and supply nutrients as it breaks down. Apply within a few inches (7.5 to 12.5 cm.) of aster stems, but not against them. Fertilize growing asters with a balanced plant food about once a month.
Asters need little in the way of maintenance. Care of asters may include deadheading for more blooms and occasionally includes controlling powdery mildew. This disease is most easily prevented by the autumn or spring division of aster flowers, with the middle clump removed and discarded.
Powdery mildew can also be controlled with insecticidal sprays and soaps, if started early and regularly applied during the growing season.
Powdery mildew usually does no lasting damage to aster flowers, but should be controlled for aesthetic purposes. Spraying may also deter the small, gray lace bug, which sometimes feeds on the succulent growth of growing asters.
