Sowing months: February - March
Flowering months: July - October
Sow verbena from February to April on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost and lightly cover the seed with vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag, maintaining a temperature of 24-27C (75-81F) until after germination which usually takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into trays or 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors.
When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise verbena plants to outdoor conditions prior to transplanting them outdoors in any well drained soil in full sun. Plant verbena at a distance of 30cm (12") apart.
