Sowing Advice

Sow seeds on surface of good quality compost or seed raising mix at any time. Salvia seed needs light to germinate Place in a propagator or cover with a plastic lid in a warm place. We recommend germinating at 15-20 degrees C.  keep moist at all times, but do not saturate. Germination in 15-20 days Keep in cooler conditions after germination occurs. Pot on seedlings to harden off and mature before finally planting out in the garden.
