SEED SOWING ADVICE: QUICK & EASY
Sow any time indoors in punnets / or scatter directly in garden in winter-early spring.
China Asters germinate easily both in the garden and indoors
INDOORS: Sow the seeds on the surface of good quality seed raising mix.
Now barely cover the seeds with mix / vermiculate / fine grit to a maximum of their own diameter. Because these seeds need light to germinate.
First soak the sown punnet in a water bath, so the moisture percolates right through from the bottom to the top.
Then place in a warm, well-lit position and keep moist.
Temperatures of 18-21C approx. are best for rapid and optimum germination.
Seedlings then emerge in approx. 7-14 days.
