How to grow Atriplex from Seed

Anytime between March-May, surface sow directly into the prepared ground and cover the seeds with just a sprinkling of soil. Germination can take 2-3 weeks at an ideal temperature of 59-65F (15-18C). When the seedlings emerge, thin down as required to 30cm spacings.

The plants prefer a sunny position sheltered from cold winds and a well drained soil. As the plants grow they may benefit from staking. If necessary the plants can be pruned in the late winter or early spring and given a mulch or feed.

Be aware that the plant readily self-seeds and so you might care to remove the seedheads at the end of the season to reduce volunteer seedlings the following year.
