Additional Seed Information
Sowing/Planting Instructions Sow on to a well wetted seed sowing compost in a 150 cell plug tray. Cover the seed with 5mm vermiculite to a depth of approximately 5mm and propagate at 15 to 20c. For best results sow three to four seeds per cell to produce a bushier looking plant. Germination should start to take place after 7 to 10 Days. Cool down to 15 c or slightly lower soon after germination to avoid any stretching of the seedlings. Another method is to sow up to 6 seeds direct into a 9cm pot and cut out the plug transfer stage altogether.
Growing Instructions When the seedlings are established cool them down slightly to 10 c and transfer on to a 6 Pack or 9cm pot for final sale. January sowings should result in saleable plants late April. Later sowings can be made in Late March-April for later pot bedding sales in June. These can be sown in the same way but transfer the plugs to a 1 litre pot for a compact flowering plant that completely fills the pot.
