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).

Sowing time/depth ,
Copious small, white, narrow-petalled, daisy-like flowers with yellow centres adorn this aster in autumn, on tall, wiry stems clothed in small leaves.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow on the surface of moist compost, covering with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or sealed plastic bag at 68-86F/20-30C. Do not exclude light as this is necessary for germination. Pot on seedlings as they develop and grow on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant out. NOTE: Seeds are difficult to fully isolate, so although I endeavour to remove much, some chaff is present. Just sow fairly liberally (but not in too small a pot to avoid overcrowding) straight from the packet, chaff and all.
