Easy to grow. Compact gorgeous flowers all summer long. Drought tolerant and deer resistant for borders, beds, patio pots and containers. Will grow 16-20 inches tall. Full sun or partial shade. Can be started indoors in winter to be transplanted outdoors in spring......or can be sown directly into the garden or containers outdoors in spring and summer. Instructions included. Should be kept moist. Good cut or dried flower. Can be sowed outside in the spring or fall. They do take an extended time to germinate (60-80 days)
Planting Salvia Seed Indoors:
1. Sow inside 10-12 weeks before the last ice.
2. Scarcely press the seeds into seed beginning equation.
3. Keep the dirt equitably sodden at 70 degrees F.
4. Seedlings develop in 15-21 days.
5. When seedlings rise, give a lot of light on a radiant windowsill or develop seedlings 3-4 crawls underneath fluorescent plant lights turned on 16 hours out of each day, off for 8 hours around evening time. Raise the lights as the plants become taller. Brilliant bulbs won't work for this procedure since they will get excessively hot. Most plants require a dull period to develop, don't leave lights on for 24 hours.
6. Seedlings needn't bother with much compost, feed when they are 3 a month old utilizing a starter arrangement (half quality of a total indoor houseplant food) as indicated by producer's headings.
7. On the off chance that you are developing salvia in little cells, you may need to relocate the seedlings to 3 or 4 inch pots when seedlings have in any event 2 sets of genuine leaves before relocating to the nursery so they have sufficient space to create solid roots.
8. Before planting salvia out in the nursery, seedling plants should be "solidified off". Acclimate youthful plants to open air conditions by moving them to a protected spot outside for seven days. Make certain to shield them from wind and blistering sun from the start. On the off chance that ice undermines around evening time, cover or bring holders inside, at that point take them out again in the first part of the day. This solidifying off procedure hardens the plant's cell structure and diminishes relocate stun and burning.
Planting Salvia Directly in the Garden:
1. Direct sow after all peril of ice in full sun in an all around depleted however dampness retentive soil
2. Expel weeds and work natural issue into the best 6-8 creeps of soil; at that point level and smooth.
3. Sow seeds uniformly and meagerly and scarcely spread with fine soil.
4. Keep uniformly wet.
5. Seedlings will develop in 15-21 days.
6. Slight to 12-18 inches separated when seedlings are around 2 inches tall.
Planting Potted Salvia Plants:
1. Select an area in full sun in a very much depleted however dampness retentive soil
2. Set up the bed by turning the dirt under to a profundity of 6-12 inches evacuating any flotsam and jetsam, and softly raking as level as could reasonably be expected.
3. The expansion of natural issue (leaf shape, fertilizer, all around spoiled excrement) benefits all nurseries and is fundamental in as of late developed neighborhoods.
4. Plant on a shady day or in late evening to diminish relocate stun.
5. Burrow a gap for each plant sufficiently enormous to adequately oblige the root ball.
6. Unpot the plant and delicately release the root ball with your hands to energize great root development.
7. Spot the head of the root ball even with the degree of the encompassing soil. Load up with soil to the head of the root ball. Press soil down solidly with your hand.
8. Utilize the plant tag as an area marker.
9. Altogether water and apply a light mulch layer on head of the dirt (1-2 inches) to ration water and lessen weeds.
All seeds will come in a resealable plastic zip lock bag with a label featuring a color photo of the plant, planting instructions, & details such as height, spacing, & light requirements for easy growing. If stored properly, your seeds can last for years! All seed packs contain fresh, 100% true named seeds - there are no fillers or other weeds or seeds mixed in. Most have been harvested by hand, & all test at an exceptionally high germination rate.
Please stored in a cool, dry place
