Cultivation Advice PORTULACA GRANDIFLORA DOUBLE MIX

CAUTION: Portulaca seeds are tiny like dust and packets need to be opened with care.

  • Sow in late February or Apr under cover with warmth provided in fine seed grade compost.
  • Seed should be surface sown and gently pressed in. Do not cover seed as it needs light to germinate. Germination averages 10-21 days at 18-21C.
  • Place a piece of glass over seed tray or seal container in a clear plastic bag to maintain humidity.
  • When large enough to handle transplant the seedlings to trays or pots and grow on in cooler conditions.
  • When all danger of frost has passed gradually harden plants off before planting out 20-30cm apart in well drained soil in full sun.  The plants average 10-12 weeks from sowing to flowering in ideal conditions.
