Thompson & Morgan Flower Grass Ornamental Pennisetum Purple Majesty 10 Seed

£3.99

Grass Ornamental - Pennisetum Purple Majesty

This attractive Ornamental Millet makes the perfect planting partner to vibrant summer annuals, adding height and interest to borders, as well as making a perfect backdrop to your display. Purple Majesty also adds a touch of the tropics to containers on a sunny patio. Young plants are first green, with the stems and mid-rib of foliage turning purple after 8 weeks. The leaves turn dark purple when planted outside in full sun.

Sow in pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite 6 to 8 weeks before last frost. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20 to 25C. After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 3 to 10 days. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm pots or trays. Gradually acclimatize young plants to outdoor conditions for 1 to 15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 15 to 2cm apart. For best results, provide a light, well to drained soil in full sun.
