Talkback: How to raise cut flowers from seed

Posted: 02/03/2014 at 20:44

You can make a seed bed in the ground and then transplant or thin, but this only really works for hardy annuals. Sowing in a tray in a propagator means that the seedlings are less likely to be eaten by slugs, scratched up by cats, pulled up by birds etc. Also half hardy or tender annuals need to have more heat to germinate and be protected from frost.

give and you will receive

Hesperis Matronalis, Sweet Rocket

I doubt they will flower this year. I would concentrate on getting good plants for next years flowers.

You could broadcast the seed where you want it, but I sow indoors into plug trays, and then pot on into 7cm pots, then plant in final position in September to flower next year.

Sweet rocket (Hesperis matronalis ) are hardy short lived perennials.

How long?

What the hedge made of? How good is your soil? How big are the plants?
