I will be sowing lobelia soon, I understand you mix the seeds with sand. What type of sand do I need to buy?
Sharp sand or horticultural sand will do, just dont use builders sand.
I have never done that, i just put a small pinch into individual modules, that way you dont need to transplant, i would be there forever if i had to do that as i grow hundreds of them.
Thanks Dave and Lyn
Just wanting check is this the right time to start them or maybe a little later. I cant remeber when I started them last year
I'd say mid February on-wards for lobelia seeds
Thanks thought it was a little early
Mid to end of Feb is just right.
I have lobelia in a coated covering I think it's clay do you sow in clumps or two to a plug ??
last year I sowed in clumps and just thinned out seemed to work well. They are really tiny seedlings.
put a pinch of seed in each plug.
