Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
An easy to grow exotic climber, with lily-like flowers in a wide range of vibrant colours. Ideal for creating a spectacular feature plant climbing up an obelisk in containers or through trellis in borders.Climber 180cm (6ft).


1 Packet (4 Seeds) (32472)

Sow February to April. Sow seeds into pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a temperature of around 20-30C (68-86F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 30-40 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots of good quality , soil-less compost and provide support for climbing shoots.

In the autumn , gradually dry off tubers and store loose , in a cool, dry and frost free place over the winter. Re-pot in early spring into 13cm (5in) pots and grow on as before, re-potting further as necessary. Grow on in a greenhouse or conservatory.

Water freely during the growing season . Tubers can take 2-3 years to flower.

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, tubers are highly toxic if eaten.
