Growing Marine Heliotrope Seeds

Bee introduces how to plant

Plant Heliotrope Seeds: Sow seed in cell packs or flats, press into soil but do not cover. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 75°F., germination is in 14-21 days. Transplant into the garden 8 to 10 in. apart after all danger of frost. Do not direct sow.

Grow Heliotrope: Full sun to part shade. Part sun to light shade in hot climates. Likes rich, moist soil with good drainage. Fertilize frequently or use Osmocote slow-release fertilizer. Pinch when young to maintain neat appearance and increase bloom. The clustered, flat flowers track the sun. To save as a winter houseplant, cut plants back by two thirds and transfer into container. Then grow on a warm, sunny windowsill.
