Pulsatilla vulgaris 'White Bells' / White Pasque Flower / Seeds

A soft hairy garden plant that produces white upward-facing trumpet-shaped and yellow centred flowers in early spring.  Flowers are followed by feathery seed heads. Plants grow to a height of 15-20cm and are great for rock gardens and front of borders.    

The Pasque Flower likes full sun and a light soil. It does not respond well to replanting, so find the right place initially and leave it if the plant is doing well – it will spread by seed when grown in a good spot.

Pack of 15 seeds.  Sow in spring to autumn at room temperature.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Hardiness Hardy herbaceous perennial (RHS Hardiness H5)
Flowers Spring, typically March and April
Height 15-20cm
Spread 20-30cm
Conditions  Sunny position in light well drained soil
Sow Sow in autumn/winter 1mm deep in a tray of moist seed compost.  Place a clear plastic lid over the tray and keep in a sheltered place outside.  Seeds germinate in spring over several months. Or sow in spring/summer and keep at 15-20°C.   Germination takes 2-4 weeks.  If there is no germination, move he tray to a fridge for 2-4 weeks and back into room temperature for germination.  Transplant seedlings into pots when they are big enough to handle and then into the garden in a sunny, well drained position.  
Grow Cut back plants in autumn, after the leaves have died down.  Plants typically flower in the second season after sowing.  Root cuttings can be taken from mature plants in winter.  Plants need well drained soil to do well –add extra grit to your soil if necessary. Pulsatilla will self-seed and naturalise in the right conditions.
