When planting Brachycome outdoors (from April to May) it is best to sow out the seeds on the surface, then give them a light covering after the last frost of spring. Sowing should continue every three weeks or so throughout the season.
If you plan to first grow Brachycome indoor then they should be prepared 8 weeks before putting out before the last frost of spring.
Germination of Brachycome species usually takes around two to three weeks when performed at +18-+22C.
Seedlings should be planted out at a spacing of 15 to 20cm in a sunny or partially shaded area. Ideally the soil should be rich and of a pH of 6 to 7.
