Sowing Advice

Seed can be sown at any time into a good quality compost or seed raising mix. Cover with fine river sand or compost to 5mm depth. Natural germination will occur outside or in a seed raising tray kept at 15-20 degrees C.  Germination takes from one to three month. Grow on the individual grass like seedlings in small pots. Protect from frost in first year. Dieramas do cross pollinate easily with other species and varieties. These seeds may produce some flower colours differing from parent plant.
