Salvia Blaze Of FireSold Out
Although Salvias tend to be later than other bedding plants, it is worth the wait for their brilliant vivid scarelt, spikes of flowers.
Height 30cm (12")
WHEN TO SOW
February to March
WHERE TO SOW
Sow in pots or trays in a good compost under glass at 21-24°C. Cover the seeds lightly with sieved compost. Keep moist.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
When the seedlings are large enough to handle, prick off into trays 5cm (2") apart. Grow on and gradually harden off for planting in the flowering site in late May 25cm (10") apart.
Pinch out the growing point when plants are about 10cm (4") tall to encourage branching with much more colour.
