Helichrysum or Xerochrysum bracteatum 'Swiss Giants Mix' / Everlastings / Seeds

A fantastic mix of Everlastings with double flowers from July to the first frost.  Plants have grey-green leaves and grow to about 1m in height.  The flowers are beautiful in the border and are excellent cut and dried flowers. They last indefinitely as dried flowers.


Everlastings grow best in a sunny spot with average to poor soil.  They tolerate drought once established.

 

Pack of approx 500 seeds.  Sow indoors in spring for planting out after the last frost.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Sow

Sow in spring indoors.  Sow the seeds on the surface of a tray of compost.  Press the seeds into the compost and do not exclude light.  Keep at a warm 18-22 degrees Celcius and germination takes 1-2 weeks.  Pot on young seedlings as they grow and plant out after the last frost, after hardening off. Seeds can be sown directly into the garden in spring in warmer Mediterranean gardens.

Grow Plants need little attention once established.  Deadhead plants to prolong flowering.  Remove the plants once they have finished flowering and sow again in spring.
