How to Grow Heliotropium from Seed

Heliotropes are a perennial in warmer climates but grown as annuals in cooler regions. Heliotrope is a fabulous choice for summer bedding schemes, containers or window boxes and makes for a wonderfully fragrant button-hole. Its fine vanilla fragrance floats through the garden on summer evenings. Bees and butterflies love it too.

Sow Heliotropium seeds indoor from early Spring through to May, ideally 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost. Lightly cover the seed and keep moist until germination, which typically occurs with 10 to 21 days at 70 – 75F

Prick out the seedlings at the fourth leaf stage and transplant into individual pots to grow on until finally planting out when all danger of frost has passed.Space plants around 10 inches apart in well drained soil. Flowering period lasts from July to October.
