Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant 6" x 6" (15 x 15 cm) apart - that's 36 plants per square meter to metric people (or you can divide up chunky plug plants and grow on in small pots before planting out). Happy in most soil types (but avoid constantly waterlogged / boggy conditions. Not suitable for areas where dogs may foul as their mess will kill it where it falls!

 

Flowering

From Early Summer TO Early Autumn

Sagina have lime green lance shaped leaves, and bloom in the summer carrying tiny white flowers.
