How to Grow Gazania from Seed

Gazanias have become very popular in the last few years. Gazania thrives in full sun, the flowers open in direct sunlight, and close in the shade so morning or afternoon shade may cause the flowers to stay closed for part of the day. Butterflies love the bright and showy Gazania blooms. Drought tolerant and easy to grow, Gazanias are a natural choice for rock gardens and seaside gardens.

Sow Gazania seed in plug trays from late December to late March for flowering plants from June onwards. Sow the seeds onto the surface of a moist, free-draining compost and cover with a layer of vermiculite. Germination normally takes around 14 days at 18-20oC. Keep the seedlings moist without over-wetting at all times.

Once the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into individual 3 inch pots and grow on cooler, around 15C is ideal until well established. Harden off for a couple of weeks before planting out.

Maintain good air movement through the plants and water in the morning rather than the evening to keep the foliage dry.
