  • Lets talk about them




    Who doesn’t love amaranthus? with their fluffy trailing tendrils or upright spikes, perfect match to any bouquet, adding a real chic elegance. I could just have vases of them all over the house (sometimes I do).

  • How to make these beauties grow



    Sow: 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Or direct sow once danger of frost has passed. 


    How: Surface sow and lightly cover. Can be easily transplanted.


    Space: 20-30cm   


    Height: 50cm   


    Where: Full Sun


    Days to Maturity: 65-75 days


    Pick: When 3/4 of the flowers are open



  • Notes from the garden



    Amaranthus can also be dried - hang upside in a cool dark place for a few weeks to retain colour - or alternatively leave in a vase without water.


    Pinch out main growing tip to encourage side branching and more useable stems (otherwise you can end up with stems as thick as broom handles).


    Recommend staking trailing types.
