Statice forever happy seeds - All the shades of light rose, lilac and lavender
Approx 20 seeds
Lets talk about them
The queen of dried flowers. Easily overlooked for use in fresh bouquet work (but don’t, it’s wonderful as a fresh cut flower). Pretty little papery flowers that bloom all summer long, very productive, and super easy to grow. But also perfect for drying.
How to make these beauties grow
Sow: Autumn for overwintering. Or late spring 4-6 weeks before the last frost.
How: Surface sow and cover lightly – light required for germination. Seeds sown in autumn - seedlings need to be grown in a cold frame or greenhouse, as the seedlings are tender to heavy frosts.
Where: Full sun
Days to Maturity: 110-120 days
Pick: When all the flowers have open. 7 days+ vase life, or can be dried
Notes From The Garden
Unlike other flowers – wait until all the flowers have opened before cutting overwise it will wilt.
Pinching statice is not required, as it grows all its stems from the base.
