This wide selection, taken from our beds of these attractive foliage plants, will produce plants which flower in all colours, shapes, and habits. These plants, once established in the garden, are long-lived and very rewarding.
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate. Do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may cause them to enter even deeper dormancy.
