How To Grow
Sow in warm areas at any time. In colder climates wait until the danger of frost is over. Sow by pressing seeds in the soil surface, direct where they are to grow or into seed trays filled with a moist quality seed raising mix. Water, and then keep evenly moist. It is beneficial to add Mr Fothergill’s Wildflower Seed Starter granules to soil surface. Place in a warm shaded position to germinate fully. Transplant to final growing position when about 7cm (3”) – avoid disturbing the roots. Grow in full sun or part shade in well-drained soil. Water in well and then regularly until established but avoid fertilisers that are not designed for Australian natives.
Seedlings emerge 14-21 days.
