planted up some seeds of this earlier this year [about May 09]. No sign of any growing shoots. Are they slow germinators?
I planted some seeds of this in early April, i bought the seeds from Italy and they have just germinated so I'm really pleased and excited. I hope to have some strong healthy plants from them ready for flowering next year.
My acanthus plant 3 years old seed from Greece. Had fantastic green leaves,now they are covered in like a grey powder. Anyone tell me why and what to do. Did not have this trouble last year.
Its a pretty plant but very invasive! once you plant it and its established its not going anywhere else apart from up.
