Bidens - Golden Eye
From T&M's own breeding program comes this prostrate form of Bidens. Ideally suited for baskets and containers or tumbling over low walls, the bright yellow flowers and ferny foliage will enhance the summer sunshine in any garden. It flowers in the summer. Height: 25-30cm.
Sow from late January to March on the surface of a good seed compost just covering the seed with a thin layer of compost or vermiculite. Germination takes 10-21 days at 13-18C. Do not exclude light. Sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. When large enough to handle, transplant the seedlings to boxes or 7.5cm pots. Pinch out the growing point when the plants are about 5cm tall. When well grown gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out in late spring.
