Planting young plants

From Late Spring TO Late Spring

Nemesia prefer moist, well-drained soil that's rich in organic matter. Set out seedlings/starter plants after last frost into the garden when all danger of frost has passed, spacing them 4 to 6 inches apart. Disturb the roots as little as possible and water well after planting. Adding a layer of organic mulch will help insulate the roots from extremes in temperature, as well as helping to retain moisture in the soil

 

Flowering Season

From Mid Autumn TO Late Summer

Where the temperatures are fairly cool, nemesia will bloom from late Spring right through Summer and early Autumn to first frost

 

Propagating by seed

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost date. If sowing indoors, sow from early to late spring in fresh seed sowing compost. Temperatures above 60F (15C) depress germination, as do fluctuating temperatures, so use a thermostatically controlled propagator on a windowsill or in a greenhouse out of the sun.
