How to Grow Verbena from Seed

Verbenas are used for summer bedding and hanging basket. They are reasonably straightforward to grow although the germinating seed can be sensitive to high moisture. Verbena germinates best in the second year after harvest and prefers a sunny position in the garden

Verbena seeds should normally be sown during March and April, onto the surface of a thoroughly soaked, free-draining, sowing compost, in seed trays or growing plugs to avoid root disturbance. Cover the seeds with dry vermiculite, and do not water again until germination has taken place, covering the trays to maintain humidity until germination has taken place, this usually takes around 14 days at 18-22oC.

Prick out the seedlings into large-celled plug trays and grow on at until the plants are growing well and ready for planting out. Harden off before planting out when all risk of frost has passed, spacing 30cm (12in) apart, in full sun.

Sear the stem ends in boiling water for a few seconds to stop petal drop once cut.
