Description

PLEASE NOTE: This is a seed packet


A wonderful variety for groundcover which becomes a carpet of blooms in spring. Great with spring bulbs, in tubs and as path or driveway edging.


Sow indoors for surest results, 0.5cm (1/4″) deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-35 days. Pot on individually when large enough to handle to 8cm (3″) pots. (Always handle by a leaf, never by the stem.) Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions before planting out 30cm (1′) apart.


Sow outdoors in a seed bed, into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2″) apart before planting out to flowering position in autumn.


Hint: Aubrietia creates a stunning backdrop for spring flowering bulbs.
