PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Rhazya, Eastern Bluestar|
|A clump-forming perennial with willowy, dark green leaves and clusters of sky-blue, starry flowers in spring and summer.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow Feb-July, gently pressing onto the surface of a moist, but not waterlogged, 50:50 peat/sand mix. Place in a propagator or sealed plastic bag at 13-15C/55-60F for 2-3 weeks (do not exclude light), then place in the fridge for 3-6 weeks, after which return the tray to the propagator for germination, which is likely to be erratic, taking from 4 weeks to a year. Transplant seedlings as they appear into 7cm/3 inch pots and grow on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant out, 12 inches apart in sun or light shade.|
