New England Asters can be started via seeds or transplantation in early spring. They can be started both indoors and outdoors. The seeds are sown superficially in rich moist soil as the plant does not prefer dried clay.
They are provided with water on a regular basis in the form of fine mist as heavy showers can bury the seeds deep into the soil, hindering the reach of sunlight. The seeds substantially need sunlight, air, and water for proper growth.
The seeds of New England Aster can germinate within 14 to 21 days if sown correctly. Given the proper temperature and favorable growth parameters, the plant soon leaps through the growing season to reach the blooming phase in late summers.
The ray florets are visited by bumblebees, bees, butterflies, leaf-cutter bees, and miner bees to lend a helping hand in the process of pollination. After the pollination, a hairy seed comes into the world with wings that can take it to place with the aid of air to begin a new lifecycle.
