How to Grow Linarea from Seed

Linarea is easy for beginners and perfect for attracting bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects. Toad Flax is a marvellous ground-covering plant also with simple green foliage and sweet, dainty snapdragon-like flowers. Ideal for beds and borders, as well as in tubs or containers as a patio plant.

Linarea seeds can be sown from January to April, very thinly in seed trays or directly into pots. Germination normally occurs with 14 to 21 days at 65F

Transplant the seedlings successively into 3 inch pots as they become large enough to handle. When the young plants are about 2-4 inches tall, transfer into the garden, from April onwards, or pot on again for planting out later.
