Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
This stunning Thunbergia (Black Eyed Susan) is the result of years of careful selection by T&M's flower breeders. Unlike many other varieties that only have an odd red bloom, with a high proportion of salmon, Blushing Susie is predominantly red, with other shades of ivory and apricot adding contrast. Spectacular when used tumbling over containers, twining around basket chains or climbing obelisks in the garden or containers. Climbing to 90-150cm (36-60in).


1 packet (8 thunbergia seeds) (26304)

Sowing Time: February to April. Sow into pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a 1/4in layer of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 14-21 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.

For best results, provide a light, well-drained soil in full sun. Can also be grown in 25-30cm (10-12in) containers in the greenhouse or conservatory. Additionally, a mid summer sowing will produce winter/spring flowering plants in the cool greenhouse.
