A member of the ginger family, originally from the Himalayas, these plants produce tall spikes of bright yellow flowers. Blooms occur from late summer through to early autumn, extending the range of colour in your garden into the autumn months.
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.
