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'|
|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.|
