A sensational blend of vibrant Gazania, bringing together all forms of colours and stripes in one fabulous mix. The short stems support large, wide blooms that open quickly and remain open for longer. Gazania splendens 'New Day Mix' are ideal for adding long lasting colour to summer bedding schemes and patio containers. These versatile plants will even tolerate windy coastal positions. Height and spread: 25cm (10").
Sow gazania from February to April on the surface of a good seed compost and gently firm down. Lightly cover the seed with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C (64-77F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged and not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 14-30 days.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When gazania plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in any light, sandy, well drained soil in full sun, at a distance of 30cm (12") apart.
