Bells of Ireland
Bells of Ireland
A cutting garden staple and one of the finest annual foliage plants you can grow for mixed bouquets. Plants are heavily branched, producing a bumper crop of tall, lime green spires adorned with bell shaped blooms.
Plant type: annual
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 90-110 days
Plant spacing: 12”
Pinch: not necessary
Approx seeds per packet: 100
How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 6-8 weeks before last frost. Germination is often slow and erratic, so be patient. Pre-chilling seed in the freezer or putting freshly sowed trays outside for a few weeks before returning them to heat will help speed up the process. Transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.
Harvest blooms once the green bells start to form along the stem. Remove leaves from the lower half of the stem because they often yellow. A vase of up to 2 weeks can be expected with the use of floral preservative.
