Agrostemma ‘Sensation Mix’

Agrostemma gracilis

All our seed is from the latest harvest and super fresh.

We have all loved growing Agrostemma, its such a versatile plant with a double harvest window from succession sowing.

Sow it in the Autumn for flowers from May or Late Winter for flowers from June, both sowings are well worth doing!

Agrostemma ‘Sensation Mix’ is perfect for adding a bit more colour to your garden.

Note: All parts of this plant are poisonous, including the seeds. Exercise caution around children and pets.

How to grow:
Sow seed into modules in Autumn and/or Late Winter, leave uncovered as light aids germination.

Agrostemma produces abundant foliage so keep an eye on watering as we near planting out time as cells will dry out faster than some other plants. Plants are tall and graceful, provide support early on to protect them from being knocked over in heavy spring rain showers.

Cutting /Vase Life:
For the longest vase life cut when flowers are newly open as once pollinated, flowers lose their petals faster than unpollinated blooms.  For fresh flowers, place straight into buckets of clean fresh water and leave them to rest for at least a few hours, this is called conditioning.
