Description Sowing Delivery Reviews
The very pretty 2.5cm (1in) long snapdragons that will thrive in sun or shade. The "Climbing Snapdragon" comes in shades of red, pink, violet and blue, with speckled creamy lips. This attractive quick-growing half-hardy annual will twine itself around trellises, or creep down from pots. The pale green foliage gives a soft foil for the dainty flowers. Also useful for pots or hanging baskets, flowering from early summer to late winter if protected from frost. Grows to 120-180cm (4-6ft).


1 packet (50 asarina seeds) (26336)

Sow from early February to mid April in a good seed compost just covering the seed with a very thin layer of compost or vermiculite. Germination takes 14-21 days at 18-20C (65-70F). Don't exclude light, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful.

When large enough to handle, transplant the seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots, and grow on in cooler conditions, potting on as necessary. For outdoor planting, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out in late spring after all risk of frost has passed 30cm (12in) apart in a sun or shade in a, sheltered spot and ordinary, cool moist yet well drained soil. On acid soils, a dusting of lime is helpful before planting. Provide a trellis, strings etc., for them to climb. They can be grown in a greenhouse/conservatory and will need a final pot size of 18-20cm (7-8in) and a minimum winter temperature of 5-7C (41-45F).
