AZALEA EXBURY HYBRIDS

Description

These seeds were collected from our own twenty year old plants which were originally grown from seeds collected from the famous Exbury Gardens. Colours come in all shades from pale lemon to deepest red, and every flower is dripping with heady perfume in spring and early summer.

Sowing Advice

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds usually germinate in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown.
