How to Grow Balloon Flowers

Balloon flowers (platycodon grandiflorus) prefer to be grown in a light, rich, moist soil with a pH of  6.1 and 7.8. Ensure that the soil is well draining as they will not tolerate soggy soils. If starting indoors, the seeds need to be surface sown and pressed into the soil while still being exposed to light. Light will help stimulate the germination process.

Once the plants have at least two sets of leaves, they can be planted outdoors after the risk of frost has past. If being sown outdoors the seeds should be lightly covered with soil to prevent them from being blown or washed away.

Germination may take anywhere between 2 to 3 weeks.
