Sowing Months Flowering Months
Deadhead faded Sea Thrift flowers to extend the flowering season throughout the summer. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of armeria in spring to maintain their vigour.

Prior to sowing, soak the seeds in warm water for 6-8 hours. Sow armeria seeds from late March to May at 16-18C (60-70F), on the surface of a good quality seed compost. Cover with a very light sprinkling of compost or vermiculate and keep the soil damp but not wet. Place in a propagator or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag until after germination, which usually takes 14-21 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors.


Move Sea thrift plants to a coldframe or plunge the pots up to their rims in a sheltered site outdoors, and grow them on in cooler conditions before planting out in the autumn at a distance of 30cm (12") apart. Grow armeria plants in full sun on well drained soil. Sea thrift is tolerant of poor sandy soils once established and copes well in coastal areas. On heavier soils, incorporate plenty of grit to improve drainage, prior to planting.
