GREENHOUSE: A Jan. sowing provides nice 3 in/8 cm plants for May combination work. For mid-winter and Easter plants, sow Aug. to Nov. at 80°F/27°C soil temperature for 14 days. Do not cover seeds just press them into the soil surface (Use a seedling mix). Seed will germinate quite slowly and irregularly so don't be in a hurry to transplant. Those small late seedlings are usually your best colors. Transplant when true leaves appear into 2.25 in/6 cm peat pots. Use sterilized soil, pots or flats, Verticillium wilt is slow death to Cinerarias! Beware of air pockets around the tender roots, when transplanting. Shift to 5 in/l 3 cm pots, as they become crowded. Do not over water as new roots are forming. Finished plants like room to breathe. For best results do not crowd or pinch. Feed lightly as buds show.
