- The perfect foil for bright summer bedding.
- The deeply-cut, silver-grey foliage of this compact and uniform plant is the ideal complement to brightly coloured bedding subjects such as petunia, salvia and geranium. Silver Dust looks as good in containers as it does in beds borders or edging a path, and is so easy to grow from seed.
- Cineraria is a half-hardy perennial (strictly a shrub), best grown as a half-hardy annual, producing a fine show in the year of sowing. Small yellow flowers may appear during the summer, but these are best removed. In milder areas it may survive the winter unprotected.
A warm kitchen windowsill is perfect for starting these seeds. Sow indoors, January-April, for surest results 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm, light position. A temperature of 20-24ºC (68-75ºF) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 10-21 days. Transplant seedlings 5cm (2”) apart to other trays when large enough to handle. Always handle by a leaf, never by the stem. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions before planting out 15cm (6”) apart.Foliage: July-October. Small, yellow flowers may appear from August to October.
