How to Sow White Creeping Summer Snow Seeds

White creeping summer snow is a delightful perennial plant, also known as Cerastium Tomentosum, boasting charming white creeping flowers and fuzzy silvery foliage. It thrives in sunny locations and well-drained soil, making it an ideal addition to any garden

How to Grow White Creeping Summer Snow From Seed

  • Soil Preparation: Prepare the soil before sowing by clearing any weeds and loosening the ground. Ensure the soil is well-draining to prevent waterlogged conditions, which the plant dislikes. Incorporate organic matter to enrich the soil and improve its texture
  • Seed Sowing: Start sowing the white creeping summer snow indoors during the early to late spring in fine seed-grade compost. Gently cover the seeds with a thin layer of compost, as these seeds require exposure to light for successful germination
  • Germination and Planting Depth: Germination of the seeds typically takes around 2-3 weeks at a temperature of 21°C (70°F). Keep the soil consistently moist during this period. Sow the seeds at a shallow depth, just enough to be covered with a light dusting of compost
  • Seed Spacing: When sowing the white creeping summer snow seeds indoors, place them about 2-3 inches apart from each other in fine seed-grade compost. This spacing will allow each seedling enough room to develop without overcrowding. Once the seedlings are large enough to handle, you can transplant them into individual pots or containers. Later, when planting them outdoors, ensure to space the transplants 25-30cm (10-12 inches) apart in the garden

How to Care for White Creeping Summer Snow Seeds

  • Maintenance: white creeping summer snow requires minimal maintenance once established. Regularly water the plant during dry periods, but avoid overwatering, as it is drought-tolerant. Remove any spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming
  • Acclimatization and Planting: Gradually acclimatize the seedlings to outdoor conditions once the danger of frost has passed. After acclimatization, transplant them into the garden, spacing them 25-30cm (10-12 inches) apart. Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil
  • Common Pests and Diseases: white creeping summer snow is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, watch out for aphids, snails, and slugs. If infestations occur, consider using organic pest control methods or appropriate treatments
