How to Grow Wallflowers from Seed

To achieve the best effect with Wallflowers plant them in large drifts rather than dotted here or there individually. Planted along the edge of a path they are a delight and of course their heady honeyed fragrance is an absolute joy.

Wallflowers need to be sown a well in advance. Seeds sown from April to June will be ready for planting out from July to August and be settled into their final positions, ideally a sunny, well-drained spot, before the winter.

Wallflower seeds can be sown into trays or coir growing pellets and should germinate within 10 to 21 days at 65 -70F, before being grown on in individual 4 inch pots. Pinching out the growing tops as you transplant them into the garden will result in bushy plants and dense flowers.

Wallflowers should be in their final flowering position by the end of August when the soil is still warm and heavy dews have started falling helping to keep the ground moist enough to not need watering, this gives the young plants time to become established and stronger before the night temperatures drop significantly.

Regular picking of flowers and dead-heading your Wallflowers is important during the warmer months to prevent them running to seed.
