Suitable for most garden soils. 1.3m x 1m.
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.
