Ageratum Red Bouquet Seeds, Temperate Flower Perennial - 0.015 Oz (Pack of 5)
China - East Asia, Floss Flower, Lady's Mantle, Plant, Autumn
Wildflower Perennial up to 15 cm high, the shape of the bush spherical. Blooms in 60-70 days after the appearance of seedlings. In winter you can transplant into pots and grow as a indoor uncultivated plant.
When to plant: Nature Plant nursery starts outdoors from late spring to early summer after all danger of frost is past. Sow seed indoors 8 to 10 weeks before your last average frost date. Seeds can be sown directly outdoors after your average last frost date; however, plants will not bloom until late summer or fall. Ageratums are heat lovers and will fail to thrive if it’s too cold.
Where to plant: In a bed or container with rich, well-draining soil that will stay evenly moist.
How to plant: Press seeds gently into the soil mix and don’t cover, as seeds need light to germinate. Keep moist until leaves emerge (5 to 14 days), and transplant outdoors after all danger of frost is past. For nursery starts, remove plant from the container and gently tease out the roots if potbound. Dig a hole and place so the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Gently tamp down soil around the base and water well. Space taller varieties 12 inches apart, and shorter varieties 6 inches apart.
