Gerbera - T&M Mixed F2 Hybrid
Fast growing and early to flower, this special T&M blend of large-bloomed gerbera make spectacular house plants. Perfect for the patio in summer and a sunny windowsill or glasshouse during the cooler months, they’ll provide months of vibrant colour. The flowers are of the very best quality and make excellent cut flowers.
Sow this fine seed on the surface of a lightly firmed, seed compost and do not cover as the seeds need light to aid germination. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag and place at a temperature of 21-23C until after germination, which usually takes 15-21 days. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm pots. Grow on in a glasshouse or on the windowsill and finally repot into a 13cm pot filled with good quality compost mix. Keep plants uniformly moist and do not overwater. Feed every 14 days with a high potash feed once plants start to bloom. Regularly remove dead heads to prolong flowering. Overwinter plants in a cool 5-7C room or glasshouse and reduce the watering.
