Aubrieta – Rich Rose Mixed This mixture provides an unbeatable spring colour for edging and rock gardens, or is great as ground cover or tumbling over low walls.
Sow indoors for surest results from February to April, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-35 days. Pot on individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm pots. Always hold seedlings by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, September-October, 30cm apart. Or, sow outdoors, from April to June, in a seed bed, 0.5cm deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn. Flowers from March to June, the following year
