The young leaves of Cineraria are a bit like oak leaves, but they become deeply cut and are covered in a silvery grey fleece. Cineraria does best in well drained soils. It is fairly drought tolerant once established, but should be watered during prolonged dry periods.

Sowing Advice-
Sow indoors from August to December & typically take around 12 weeks from sowing to planting out. Surface sow the seeds into a good quality, moist seed compost. Do not cover, as they need light to germinate. Make sure the compost is kept moist but not wet at all times, watering from the base to prevent damping off. Germination usually takes 10 to 14 days at 18 to 24°C. Once the seedlings have their first set of true leaves and are large enough to handle, transplant the seedlings into 7cm pots to grow on.
