Growing Helenium from seed.

Posted: 10/05/2016 at 20:55

As a big fan of Heleniums I thought i'd try growing from seed. Has anybody got any tips? My seeds have been in for over 5 weeks now and there is nothing to be seen!

Great tips on growing carrots but what sort of sand would you use with your compost? Beach sand or sharp grey sand?

Ok thank you, let's hope for some hot and sunny weather soon.

Hi artjak, we live in Cornwall where it's been breezy and quite cool, but I did put a few out last night with the protection of plastic bottles. Do you know if it's a good time to plant out Cleome?

Thanks Busy Bee2 that's great. Wish I thought of the plastic bottle idea, it will also stop the slugs having a chew on them as well. Thank you.

Hello, I've grown cosmos purity and all sorts mix from seed for the first time this spring. They are looking really good, standing about 3-4 inches tall, but now I've come to a stand still. What do I do now? When do I plant out? I've also grown cleome and also come to a stand still. Any help would be great, please.

Great instructions for that part, but what are we suppose to do after potting on?

Thank you Dovefromabove i'll have to get a bag of seed compost soon or maybe I'll have a go at making my own.

Thank you for the info artjak and Dovefromabove. What ratio would you use for a seed mix? I also had given to me a bag of John Innes young plant compost, would this be ok to use as a seed compost?
