These are slow to flower, but truly worth the wait. The café-au-lait-coloured lisianthus is perfect for arranging with soft-coloured dahlias, roses and sunflowers (such as Pro-Cut Plum) and this has an exceptional vase life of 10 days if kept cool.

I’d say this is all set to take the cut flower world by storm. We grew this outside in a sheltered spot, but it’s also happy if you have a spot in a greenhouse or polytunnel.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Lisianthus should be sown in early spring, sparingly in trays in a warm propagator. Once seedlings emerge and are large enough to handle, pot them on into individual 9cm pots to grow on. It is very important for the roots not to become waterlogged or the compost too damp, especially when plants are young. May be grown under cover in pots or a greenhouse border. If growing outside, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting in a sheltered, sunny spot.
Care Tips Regular feeding with a balanced liquid fertiliser will help produce the best blooms. Support may be required to keep plants growing upright.
