Aster Pot "N" Patio Mixed
Dwarf asters are hardy annuals, often known as China asters, they make wonderful cut flowers and patio plants in a brilliant range of colours. Unlike the perennial asters that flower in autumn these annual asters are short, bedding plants that will brighten up the summer garden to keep flowering until the frosts. Grow asters in a sunny position in moist but well drained soil in beds, borders and containers.. Perform well in patio pots, colour bowls and mixed container plantings, producing 2.5 to 3-in./5 to 7-cm, double blooms.
Not recommended for landscape plantings.
While sowing seeds make sure the soil is damp and not wet. Water the seeds as the soil starts to dry. It should always be moist, but never wet or muddy. Do not water the seeds if the soil is already moist to the touch, as overwatering your plant can be just as harmful as underwatering.
Keep the seedling tray in bright filtered light to begin with. Slowly introduce the plant to morning sun and bring it back in before the afternoon sun sets in. In a weeks time you can put it in direct sunlight.
