Planting & Care
Cultivation Practices to be Followed

Nursery

For bold seeded flower crops viz. balsam, calendula, dahlia, ipomea, nasturium, ornamental gourds, sunflower, tithonia, thunbergia etc.

The seeds can be sown directly into the pots or flower beds. The beds have to be prepared finely by adding compost. The seeds have to be sown at one cm depth with two seeds per hill (in hybrids one seed per hill) and one food apart. Water the beds gently and maintain the moisture of the beds by regular watering. Once the seeds have germinated, thin out the seedlings to maintain one seedling per hill.

for medium sized flower varieties viz. African marigold, aster, acroclinium, centuarea, chrysanthemum, coreopsis, cosmos, French, marigold, gaillardia, gazania, gomphrena, helichrysum, melampodium, mirabills, vinca, zinnia etc.

The nursery beds have to be prepared finely by adding compost. Grooves of half cm deep have to be made and covered with thin layer of soil. Drench the bed with captain or blue copper solutions @3g per liter of water. Cover the beds with straw of paper. The seeds take 4-6 days to germinated, as soon as you see that the seeds are just germinating, remove the straw or paper. After four weeks the seedlings will be read for transplanting to flower beds or big pots.

for small seeded flower varieties viz. ageratum, alyssum, begonia, carnation, celosia, kochia, cineraria, coleus, dianthus, gypsophila, impatiens, petunia, pansy, phlox, portulaca, statice, viola, verbena etc.

The sowing medium should contain sieved leaf mould or compost, sand and ted soil in equal proportions. Pour the medium in a wooden box of size 1 X 1.5 X3" or seed pans and press uniformly. Make half cm deep groove, using a wooden stick. Spray captain or blue copper @3g per liter of water till the media is completely drenched. So the seed s thinly in the groove and spray the fungicide solution again. Do not cover the seeds with medium. Cover the box with a transparent plastic sheet and keep in shaded place. The seeds take 4-6 days to germinate. As soon as you notice that the seeds are just germination, remove the cover and expose at the seedlings to partial shade, otherwise seedlings will become lanky. Gradually you can keep the box or seed pan in full sunlight. After four weeks the seedling will be ready for transplanting to flower beds or big pots.

Sunlight: Full sun

Soil: Strawflowers need moist, but well drained soil.

Water: Dry to medium

Temprature: Keep the temperature within the growing medium at 70° F.

Fertilizer: Fertilizer (17 : 17 :17 ) application [ 1g per liter of water ] has to be stared ten days after transplanting ( 30 days after sowing in case of direct sown crops). This can be repeated once in ten days. Spray 1.5g of dittany M-45 during rainy season once in 15 days.

Care:
  • For places like Bangalore, flower crops can be grown all round the year with better care during summer months.
  • General Instruction: • We always supply good quality seeds with high germination and purity • Seeds to be stored in cool and dry places • Do not store seed packets near chemicals and fertilizers.
  • • After expiry date, seed packets should not be sold by traders not be purchased by customers.

Use
Ornamental use:
  • Strawflowers are great for cut or dried flowers (pinch off the side shoots to encourage larger blooms).
  • For dried flower arrangements, Strawflowers should be cut just as they begin to open, then dried head down, hanging by the stem in a dry, shaded area for a couple of weeks.
