How to Grow Francoa from Seed

Francoa, also known as Wedding Plant or Bridal Wreath, is a reliable garden perennial that looks ever bit as lovely in a border as it does in a vase. Francoa is perfect for cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland gardens.

Sow Francoa seeds from February to June. Scatter Bridal Wreath seeds over the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Germination normally takes 14 to 30 days Keep at 13-15ºC (55-60ºF). Do not exclude light as this aids germination.

Once the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 3 inch pots. Gradually harden off the young plants before planting out 45-60cm or 18-24in apart. In colder climates young, small Francoa plants will benefit from being over-wintered in a frost free greenhouse.
