How to Grow Helichrysum from Seed

Surface sow the seeds indoors between March-May onto moist well drained compost. Cover with a light sprinkling of soil at a temperature of 75F when germination will take about 14 days.

When the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into 3” pots and grow on in cooler conditions. After the last frost has past move into a sunny position in the garden and thoroughly water in.

N.B. For flower arranging cut the flower heads a day or two before the bud fully opens.
