Alchemilla mollis – Large clusters of yellowish chartreuse flowers are produced during spring. Attractive, gray-green pleated leaves are rounded and slightly hairy and are a fantastic feature on their own. Water droplets become trapped in the pleats of the foliage and sparkle in the sunlight. Can cut foliage back to produce a flush of new growth in autumn. Ideal perennial for shady borders and edges. This hardy member of the rosaceae family enjoys part shade in humus rich, moist well drained soil. 45cm x 45cm.
Alchemilla seed can be sown at any time. Sow seed onto a good soil base compost or seed raising mix. Cover the seed with fine grit or well washed river sand to approximately their own depth. Natural germination will occur if kept in an unheated poly house or covered seed raising tray. Many seeds wait for Spring before emerging regardless of when they are sown so please give them a full season of growth before discarding. Germination can be quicker if kept at 15-20 Degrees C. Keep moist, but not saturate, at all times.
