Antirrhinum majus. Snapdragons should be started indoors at least 6 to 8 weeks before transplanting outside after all danger of frost has passed. Sow seeds on top of the soil mix, leaving the seeds uncovered but pressed onto the soil surface, as light is needed for germination. Provide even moisture and strong light during germination. Prepare a garden bed in full to partial sunlight with rich, well-draining soil. Harden the plants off by gradually acclimating them to the outdoors over 1 to 2 weeks. Carefully transplant the seedlings, planting them 8" to 12" apart. To encourage branching and flower production, pinch back the young plants. Snapdragons taller than 24" may require staking. This versatile annual, available in single and double blooms, is fabulous in cut-flower bouquets, containers and garden beds. Summer flowering.
