It is recommended to grow Aster flowers in a different location each summer to avoid disease. To get a jump start on the growing season, start the Aster seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost is expected. For areas with long growing season, Aster seeds can also be started directly outdoors in prepared seedbeds.
