Aubrieta - Purple Cascade
This is an excellent strain almost smothered in flowers in rich purple shades, which is excellent for a bold spring display. It is suitable for rockeries, walls, borders, edging paths, planters, window boxes etc. Flowers early spring. Spread 30-38cm.
Sow from late winter to early summer in a good free draining seed compost just covering the seed. Make sure the compost is moist and not wet and seal in a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 14-21 days at 18C. Transplant when large enough to handle into boxes and then 7.5cm pots. Later plant out 3cm apart into a well-drained garden soil preferably containing lime, in a sunny site.
