Ageratum Blue Mink Seeds
Info: Ageratum Blue Mink is a pretty, blue flowering cushion perennial which is kept here in Central Europe as annual. Blue Mink originally comes from Mexico and is particularly suitable as an edging for beds and borders or in pots or tubs on terraces and balconies.
Sowing & care: Sowing takes place in pre-culture from March or from May on outdoors. To do this, place the seed in trays, press lightly and keep moist. Later, prick into pots and pinch the tip off the plants after the 5th leaf pair so that they develop a compact growth. If you cut off withered flowers, you prolong the flowering time. Liver balm prefers a sunny location and a well-drained substrate that is not too rich in nutrients.
