Aster - Milady Mixed
Excellent for bedding, these plants are robust, bushy and very wilt resistant. The well-formed, globular, weather resistant flowers in blue, pink, rose, rose-red and white, are produced over a long period. This is useful as a summer flowering pot plant, for window boxes etc.
Sow from March to April. Germinate at 20-30C on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Do not cover seed. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 7-14 days. Do not exclude light at any stage, as this helps germination. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm pots. Grow on in cooler, well-lit conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm apart.
