How to Germinate Cetaurea Cyanus from Seed!
You can plant the seed directly into prepared soil in the Garden in Late Autumn for growing the next year,
Alternatively you can grow it in pots in early spring.
Prepare a pot or plant cells with a seed compost and stand your pot or cells in the water.
Once the soil is damp to the touch on the top you know your soil is wet enough to sow.
Sprinkle the seeds finley across the compost spacing them out.
Plant them 1cm Deep.
Now you need to create a humid atmosphere with clingfilm,if using a pot just pull the Clingfilm tight over the top .
Within a few hours you should see condensation if you dont the clingfilm isnt tight enough or air is getting in.
With cells you do the same thing but will need to cover the seeds and the base and the sides to create the humid enviroment.
Cornflower seeds like to germinate in the dark to cover them completley or place the seeds somewhere that is dark.
The pot should self water if the cling film is tight enough if it looks dry stand your post or cells in water and let it soak from the base.
When big enough seperate the seedlings out into pots or cells.
The Seedlings can be slowly exposed to the outside weather to harden off.
Start by exposing them outside for just a few hours if in a colder climate.
