Approximate Seed Quantity: 50

No, not the spider plant we all had in our bathrooms at one time! This is a strongly scented plant of upright nature from South America. Displays a mix of white, pink or mauve flower which produces exceptionally long stamens protruding from the large flower heads. It is thought that both these and the long seed pods later in the year give the plant a spidery appearance. They do not tolerate frost, cold winds or exposed sites. Annual. Download sowing guide

  • Can be tricky to germinate but worth the effort, needs warmth to thrive once established
  • Chill the seed for 5-7 days in a fridge prior to sowing
  • Sow in fine well drained seed compost, barely covering the seed
  • Sow 4-5 weeks before your last expected frost
  • Temperature fluctuations aid germination. Keep at 23-26°C during the day and at 15-18°C during the night
  • Days to germination: 10-14 days given the correct conditions
  • Once the first true leaves have formed prick out and grow on in cooler conditions
  • Unless under glass do not plant out until the weather and soil has warmed
  • Protect from slugs and snails until well established
