Sowing instructions: Sow Feb-Mar on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Lightly cover the seed with a sprinkle of fine grade vermiculite. Keep at a temperature of between 18-21 Celsius. After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Germination will usually take 21-30 days, but can be erratic. After initial moistening of compost , do not moisten again until after germination, as Verbena like to germinate in almost dry conditions.

Planting instructions: No special requirements, sun or partial shade.
