How to Grow Mixed Giant Strawflower from Seed

  • Soil Preparation Advice: Mixed Giant Strawflowers thrive in well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Preparing the soil is essential for their success. Start by loosening the soil to improve aeration, and enrich it with organic matter, such as compost, to enhance its moisture-retaining properties
  • Seed Sowing Advice: Plant Mixed Giant Strawflower seeds at a depth of 1/8 inch (3mm) in the well-prepared soil. Ensure the soil is adequately moist, but avoid overwatering to prevent waterlogging, which can harm seedlings
  • Seed Spacing: For optimal growth and air circulation, space the seeds approximately 12 inches (30 cm) apart. Adequate spacing allows the plants to develop healthily and showcase their vibrant blooms
  • Germination: Mixed Giant Strawflowers germinate best at temperatures around 70°F (21°C). Encourage germination by covering the planting area with a plastic sheet, maintaining a warm and moist environment

How to Care for Mixed Giant Strawflower Seeds

  • Maintenance: Regularly water your Mixed Giant Strawflowers and provide them with full sun exposure to encourage healthy growth. To retain moisture and suppress weeds, mulch around the base of the plants
  • Maturity: At full maturity, these striking flowers will reach towering heights of up to 36 inches (91 cm) and grace your garden with their magnificent and colourful blooms
  • Common Pests or Diseases: Keep a watchful eye on common pests such as aphids and be vigilant against powdery mildew. If aphids are present, consider using a gentle insecticidal soap, and to combat powdery mildew, ensure good air circulation and consider a fungicidal treatment if necessary
