Aster China Single Mixed Seeds
Info: This is a colourful mix of China asters, showing their abundant, eye-catching flowers over an extended period from summer late into autumn. This variety is ideal as a cut flower and is also popular with butterflies and bees. If you regularly remove the dead flowers, you will prolong blooming. Also suitable for pots and tubs.
Sowing & cultivation: Sowing takes place in pre-culture 3 - 4 weeks before the last frost in trays or from May directly outside. Seed depth: 0.5 cm in moist growing soil. Later, thin the plants out to 45cm apart. China asters like a sunny to semi-shady location, regular watering and a nutrient-rich, loose soil.
