Cyperus glaber seeds
A fast growing, versatile perennial grass with spiky green leaves topped by frilly green flower heads which last well into autumn. Excellent as a dot plant and equally effective planted in drifts for landscaping. Loves a sunny spot in either wet or dry soil.
Flowers: Summer with seed heads until late autumn
Height: 65cm, Position: Sun in either wet or dry soil
Packet of 50 seeds
Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of year except early to mid summer. Sow in pots or trays on the surface of a moist, free-draining, peat-based seed compost (eg. Levington) and do not cover the seed. Seal inside a polythene bag or place in a propagator and maintain a temperature of 20-23C. Make sure the compost remains moist. Germination should take place in 14-30 days.
Growing Instructions: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, pot up individually into small pots (7-9cm) and grow on in well-ventilated, slightly cooler conditions, repotting as necessary. Keep compost moist at all times.
Harden off in spring after the last frosts by placing outdoors during the day for 2 weeks, then plant out in a sunny position.
