#heliotrope #seedlings I'm so excited because I didn't know if I actually had seeds or of it was all chaff. #grownfromseed #collected from my plant last year. Germinated in only ten days! (Research said 28-42 days to germinate.)

Start heliotrope seed indoors 10 to 12 weeks before your last frost date under grow lights. You can also buy heliotrope seedlings from garden centers in spring. Plant seedlings or transplants outdoors after all danger of frost has passed in a full to part sun location on well-drained fertile soil.

Seeds are the most popular method for how to grow heliotrope. Start your seeds indoors using regular potting soil 10 to twelve weeks before the last spring frost date for your area, allowing for the 28 to 42 days for germination. They’ll also need temperatures of 70-75 F. (21-24 C.) to germinate.

Propagation by cuttings is the preferred method for how to grow heliotrope plants that are true to the parent plant’s color and scent. They also provide sturdier seedlings to set out in the spring. The best time to take cuttings is in late summer when the plants sometimes become leggy.

Care of heliotrope plants in containers is about the same as other container plants. They are heavy feeders in the garden, but in containers, they become voracious. Feed them every two weeks with a liquid fertilizer meant for flowering plants.

@cyndi I’m trying to #overwinter the plant I bought, because it smells so nice! Hopeful that this chaff contains some seeds because the plants aren’t happy indoors. Apparently, I should have taken cuttings. Live and learn. 😉
