Guidance for Sowing Mixed Colour Nemesia Strumosa from Seed

  • Mixed colour nemesia strumosa can be sown indoors in plant pots, containers, hanging baskets and window boxes in an area with plenty of light and warmth.
  • Sow seeds at a depth of 1/4″ in moist fine compost. If sowing outdoors, start in early spring keeping the soil moist but well drained. Germination should take between 10-12 days, under ideal conditions.
  • Transplant seedlings when big enough to handle, with a plant spacing between 5 to 6″ to allow room to grow.
  • Pinch out tips to encourage healthy new growth and water freely when the ground is dry over a long period.
  • Pinch longer tips, to create a bushier plant. Cut back spent flowers, to encourage a secondary growth of flowers.
