Description

A most unusual seedling appeared one day. Tight upright habit, compact trusses of upward-facing pale pink flowers. We concluded that as it appeared between the two, its parents were most probably G. clarkei 'Kashmir White' and G. sylvaticum. The seedlings displayed astonishing diversity, all having the same massed flower heads, but in colours from palest pinks to deepest blues.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
