MUSCARI AUCHERI 'OCEAN MAGIC'
The fragrant, long-lasting, pastel-blue flowers of the grape hyacinth ‘Ocean Magic’ contrast beautifully with other spring bulbs such as small daffodils and species tulips. Flowers arise in mid-spring on erect, leafless, ankle-high stems whilst the clumps of grass-like leaves appear in autumn and persist throughout winter and most of spring.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
