Planting and care

If planning to grow Lampranthus outdoors from the off it is best to sow out the seed in following the last frost of spring, simply cover the seeds. The seeds should be sown in a sunny area of the garden that has excellent drainage. The soil should be dry and stony; at the time of sowing add manure.
When starting to grow Lampranthus plants indoors first, then they should be started about two months before they are due to be transplanted out; a few weeks after the last frost of spring.
