Plant Care

Watering

Wet the seed starting mix. Push your finger into the soil to your first knuckle and make sure it is damp. Excess water should drain through.

Light

Indirect sunlight, 6 to 8 hours

Temperature

Maintain temperatures between 18°C - 24°C. Avoid draughts as these can create undesirable temperature fluctuations. Consider giving your plant an occasional misting twice every week to maintain the optimum humidity level.

Fertilizer

Provide fertilizer once the first true leaves emerge. The first set of leaves that appear are known as the seed leaves. The second set of leaves are the first ‘true leaves,’ and a sign that your plant is getting mature and ready for serious growth. Dilute a balanced fertilizer to ¼ the strength recommended. Fertilize once in 2 weeks.

Product Bio

Matthiola, commonly known as stock, is a delightful annual flower prized for its fragrant blooms and vibrant colors. Here's how to sow and care for Matthiola Mixed Color seeds:

Timing and Location: Start Matthiola seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date or directly sow them outdoors after the danger of frost has passed. Matthiola prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade in hotter climates.

Soil Preparation: Use a well-draining, fertile soil mix for indoor sowing. For outdoor planting, prepare the soil by loosening it to a depth of about 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) and incorporating compost to improve fertility and drainage.

Sowing: Sow Matthiola Mixed Color seeds ¼ inch deep in seed trays or pots indoors, or directly on the soil surface outdoors. Space seeds about 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) apart. Lightly cover the seeds with soil and water gently.

Moisture and Temperature: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged during the germination period, which typically takes 7-14 days. Maintain a soil temperature of 65-70°F (18-21°C) for optimal germination.

Thinning and Transplanting: Once seedlings develop two sets of true leaves, thin them to ensure adequate spacing. If started indoors, harden off seedlings by gradually exposing them to outdoor conditions for a week before transplanting. Space the plants 12-18 inches (30-45 cm) apart.

Care: Water regularly to keep the soil evenly moist, especially during dry periods. Mulch around the plants to conserve moisture and suppress weeds. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms.

By following these guidelines and providing proper care, you can enjoy a profusion of fragrant and colorful Matthiola blooms in your garden or landscape.
