GOMPHRENA   (Globe Amaranth)   

Annual Approx. 10,000 seeds per oz/28 gr. 6-18 in/15-46 cm

GREENHOUSE: (Cleaned Seed). Sow March 15th for May sales. Spread the seeds at 6 seeds per in./25 mm on the surface of the soil, cover with 1/4 in/6 mm of soil. Germinate at 80°F/27°C soil temp. for 14 days. Keep seed flat in total darkness for proper germination, or cover with black plastic. Transplant into peat pots or paks.

HOME GARDEN: In northern areas Gomphrena should be started indoors by April 15 for July blooms. Transplant 10 in/25 cm apart. It responds to very warm soil conditions for proper germination (80°F/27°C) - so you could not sow it outside until June. This would be too late as they need about 10 weeks to produce flowers. Gomphrena is a good cut flower and lasts for days. It is also a fine Everlasting. Flowers dry quickly and easily for winter arrangements-retaining their shape and color.
