Growing Snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus)

Snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus), are technically a short lived perennial best grown as an annual.

I find that Snapdragons bloom best in their first year, especially from a Autumn sowing (Autumn Jump Start).

Aging plants don’t flower as well and are susceptible to Antirrhinum rust (Puccinia antirrhini).

Plants can also be wiped out by a very cold winter.

I sow seeds twice, once in Autumn and then again in late Winter for flowers from late Spring to late Summer.

Much more information in the video, grab a cuppa and enjoy! Love Zoe xxx

Pinching Snapdragons and Late Winter sowing
Most flowers are phototropic which means they bend towards the light, Snapdragons are also geotropic.
