Reasons to buy your seeds from Thompson & Morgan


1 packet (40 verbascum seeds) (26186)

Sowing
Germinate at 15-18C (59-64F) on the surface of a good free-draining, damp seed compost. Apply a layer of vermiculite, 1.5mm (1/16in) deep. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 14-30 days.

Transplant when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots and place in cooler conditions. After all risk of frost, plant out 45cm (18in) apart. Removing spent flower stems will encourage a second flush.
