Hi I'm Stan DeFreitas, "Mr. Green Thumb" for If you're thinking about Four O'clocks you can raise your own seed. Now typically the Four O'clock will be a plant that tends to vine and it tends to grow over an area, not so much vining as it is just sort of a naturalistic type plant, so you're probably going to get the seed and plant them where you want them to remain. Now either near full sun to partial shade, probably not going to grow them in the densest shade but they probably will do better in partial shade than in the really hot west afternoon sun. Four o'clocks are beautiful different colors of plants and it's one that you may not always see in the nursery but you can probably find some seeds either through some of the catalogs or you may find a friend that has some and collect some seeds there. You can collect your own seeds. If you do, put them in a dry paper towel, let them dry a little bit, store them and make sure when you do plant them out, I'd add a little bit of peat moss to the existing planting site or a little potting soil and make sure that you water them in well. They've got to stay moist until they germinate and it will probably take about ten to fourteen days for the little seeds to germinate. You're going to find that they're a fun plant to grow and they're an interesting plant to have in your landscape. How to grow four o'clocks, I'm Stan DeFreitas, "Mr. Green Thumb".
