I planted some Agastache - Apricot Sprite seeds. They've germinated well. Picture shows them in a 5" pot. When I pot them into their final pot which will be 12" how many do I put per pot?

    I’ve grown those from seeds, they don’t grow very big in the first year, you could put all those in a 12 inch pot. 
    At the moment they don’t need transplanting, when they’re bigger put them into individual 3” pots and wait for the  roots to fill those before moving on.

    They need a bit of protection to survive the winter I found.  The fragrance from the leaves is very distinctive when you brush past them.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Yes, we bought one of these plants a few years ago. Always loved the fragrance. It died following the harsh winter 2018. So this time I bought some seeds to grow from scratch.
