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).

Aster chinensis 'Hulk'
Aster 'Hulk'
Currently unavailable
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Annual, Half-Hardy
Flowering period July-October
Height 24-36in/60-90cm
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Any, well drained
Sowing time/depth March-April, Barely cover
A very unusual Aster that appears to have green petals - but in fact it has no true petals! Makes a good cut flower. Seems to exude a nectar which ladybirds like.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow seeds in a pot or seed tray, covering with just a little compost or vermiculite. Do not exclude light. Cover with clear plastic or place in a propagator at 68-77F/20-25C, keeping moist but not waterlogged. Germination should occur within 1-3 weeks. Move on into 3in pots when large enough to handle and plant out when danger of frost is past.
