Watsonia meriana (100 seeds)


2 in stock

Watsonia meriana (Iridaceae). It grows naturally in sandy or granite soils and often in marches or along streambanks. It grows up to 2.5m high and flowers early to mid summer. Sowing: Seed is sown in autumn, thinly, in deep (min. 10 cm) seed trays, to allow for root development. The soil medium should be well drained, a recommended mix being 2 parts sand: 2 parts compost: 1 part loam or equal parts sand and compost, and the seeds should be planted 3-4 mm deep, covered with clean sand and kept moist and lightly shaded. Seed germinates readily within 3 to 4 weeks. Watering should be reduced towards the end of the growing season and withheld completely when they are dormant, resuming only in the autumn. Locality: Caledon. Harvest: February 2024
