Dierama Dracomontanum Flower Seeds
Plant Classification: Hardy perennial
Height (approx.): 60cm
Compact clumps produce disproportionately large, deep pink flared trumpets on densely-packed delicate arching stems. Clumps will improve yearly but do not like to be moved.
GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: Sow September-November and February-April, in pots or trays of seed compost and place in a cold frame. Keep moist. Transplant seedlings to further pots or trays (in March) when large enough to handle. Grow on and plant out in flowering position, the following year, when the root system has developed. Alternatively, sow seed in a well-prepared seed bed and plant out in a well-drained flowering position in September. Flowers: July to August.
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Plant in the greenhouse in individual large pots, or 3 plants per grow bag when 20cm (8in) high. Can be planted outdoors, 45cm (18in) apart once all frost risk has passed
Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers
Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
