The GrowBar is a cleverly curated seed collection nestled in neat, fertile coir bags, ready to grow. Just add water! See also our sets where we have combined one with a Hachiman Pot & Plate making the perfect, and unique, gift for anyone!
This GrowBar contains 3 seeds; Red Valerian, Thyme Serpyllum & Scabious, all selected to bring butterflies fluttering to your garden with spectacular displays of crimson and purple nectar rich flowers.
How to identify your seedlings; Red Valerian has long, smooth leaves. Red Valerian enjoys full sun in well-drained soil. Snip off any dead heads during the summer to prolong flowering. Scabious is feathery and slightly hairy. The flowers are happy in full sun and well-drained soil. Remove deadheads regularly to prolong flowering. Thyme Serpyllum has tiny, aromatic oval shaped leaves. This creeping Thyme will be happy along a path or in a pot and positioned where butterflies can reach it.
Germination Dates: March - June
Start by unwrapping your GrowBar and place it with the brown protective paper facing upwards, into a container with plenty of space to allow it to expand; a takeaway food tray is ideal. Gently pour half a litre of water into the tray and position indoors on a warm, bright sunny windowsill. The seeds will need to be a cosy 18°-22° to germinate.
Water regularly and ensure the Growbar is perfectly moist, it should remain the colour of a rich dark ginger cake.
After a few weeks you should have a bar neatly dotted with little seedlings. These will be happy growing together in the bar for a further month in their sunny location.
When the seedlings have produced 4-8 leaves you may then gently separate them, being careful to not damage the delicate roots, and plant them in individual pots or a sunny weed-free spot in the garden. Plants grown in the ground with plenty of space and sunlight will produce more abundant fragrant foliage but it is possible to grow the seedlings in large containers on the balcony or patio.
