When to sow

Spring & autumn


  • Accent plant
  • Foliage colour & texture
  • Suitable for containers


Fill a seed tray with Yates Black MagicĀ® Seed Raising Mix. Press mix firmly into tray; water and allow to drain. Sow seed and cover lightly with seed raising mix. Place tray in a warm, shady, sheltered place and mist with water, as required, to keep moist (not wet).


Once seedlings are 3-5cm high, transplant into small individual pots. Grow on until a root ball establishes and transplant into the garden or containers.


Cold treatment and growing in a greenhouse will enhance germination. Apply Yates BlitzemĀ® to protect young seedlings from slugs and snails.
