Easy and quick to grow, Gypsophila provides an excellent foil for other border plants. The slender stems are very useful for cut or dried flower arrangements.
A hardy annual which grows in any ordinary well-drained soil in a sunny location. Very strong sunlight may, however, cause the flower colour to fade.
|Growth Height — 60cm|
|Light Requirements — Full sun, Part Shade|

Sow early spring to early summer – all year round in frost free warm areas. Sow 5mm (1/4”) deep in pots or trays of seed raising mix compost. Transplant to 10-15cm (4-6”) pots in a warm, sunny spot. Transfer to final fruiting position when sturdy enough. Space plants 75cm (30”) apart each way. Feed regularly when the first truss has set. Pinch out the side shoots as they appear. Can also be sown direct in final growing position, especially your late crop. Harvest when red ripe, although slightly coloured fruit will ripen indoors.
Keep this plant moist.
