|Additional Seed Information|
|Sowing/Planting Instructions||Sow indoors, February-June, in a greenhouse at about 20°C (68°F). Cover only lightly or press the seed gently into the surface of moist seed compost. Cover with a sheet of plastic or glass to prevent the compost from drying out. Germination may be erratic. Prick the seedlings out individually as soon as they are large enough and transfer to a cool greenhouse or cold frame. Harden off and plant out, approx. three months after sowing, 35cm (14) apart. Or, sow outdoors, during July in the flowering site at a depth of 0.5cm (¼). Thin the seedlings out to 35cm (14) apart. Flowers: June to October|
|Growing Instructions||When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. Move Sea thrift plants to a cold frame or plunge the pots up to their rims in a sheltered site outdoors, and grow them on in cooler conditions before planting out in the autumn at a distance of 30°Cm (12") apart. Grow Armeria plants in full sun on well drained soil. Sea thrift is tolerant of poor sandy soils once established and copes well in coastal areas. On heavier soils, incorporate plenty of grit to improve drainage, prior to planting.|
