How to Plant Asters

  • When planting young aster plants outside in the spring, space them 1 to 3 feet apart, depending on the type and how large it’s expected to get.
  • Fully-grown asters, such as those available in late summer or early fall, should be planted about 3 feet apart.
  • If planting seeds, sow 1 inch deep in pots or flats and refrigerate them for 4 to 6 weeks to simulate winter dormancy. This cold period will kick-start germination.
  • Water well and spread mulch around the plants to keep the soil cool and prevent weeds.


    • Add a thin layer of compost (or a portion of balanced fertilizer) with a 2–inch layer of mulch around the plants every spring to encourage vigorous growth.
    • If less than 1 inch of rain falls weekly in summer, water regularly. But beware. Many asters are sensitive to too much or too little moisture. They will lose their lower foliage or not flower well. Watch for stress and try a different watering method if your plants lose flowers.
    • Stake the tall varieties to keep them from falling over.
    • Pinch or cut back asters by one-third once or twice in the early summer to promote bushier growth and more blooms. Don’t worry; they can take it!
    • In winter, cut back asters after the foliage has died, or leave them through the winter to add some off-season interest to your garden. Birds may munch on the seeds, too.
      • Note: Aster flowers that mature fully may reseed themselves. The resulting asters may not bloom true to their parent. (In other words, you may not get the same color flowers you planted initially!)
    • Divide every 2 to 3 years in the spring to maintain your plant’s vigor and flower quality.
