Growing from lobularia seeds

The genus lobularia includes five species, but only one species of lobularia marine (another name is alissum) and its garden forms are grown in the gardens: Betnam and prostrate lobularia. The plant exudes pleasant fragrant aromat. Growing from lobularia seeds has its own characteristics. Its seeds are very small and need light to germinate. Therefore, they are sown without embedding them in the soil.

In late April or early May, seeds are sown in open ground to a permanent place. You can mix them with sand to scatter evenly. Seedlings will then need to be thinned out, leaving an interval between plants of 15 or 20 centimeters, otherwise the plants will stretch out strongly and bloom poorly. Can also be grown from Lobularia seeds for seedlings. In this case, in March, they are laid out with a toothpick on the surface of the moistened earth in a seedling box. The substrate should be loose. The box is covered with glass or cellophane film and placed in a bright, warm place.

The soil in the seedling box is moistened with spraying, the resulting mini-greenhouse is regularly ventilated. Seedlings can appear only on the 10th day. When the seedlings have a pair of true leaves, they are seated in separate containers and watered moderately. Seedlings can be planted in a permanent place at the end of May, when the threat of night frosts disappears. Lobularia blooms 40-50 days after sowing.
