Astrantia major

A favourite among florists, with its dainty white paper like flowers with pink veining. Grows best in light shade and slightly damp conditions.



Astrantia seed can be fickle to germinate. The sowing must be kept warm (about 18 to 22°C) and moist for the first 2–4 weeks.  After this period the sowing must be kept at a cold temperature (between –4 and +4°C) for another 4–6 weeks.  This is best achieved by placing in your fridge inside a sealed plastic bag to retain moisture. After the 6 weeks, place tray in a warm location (~18°C) where seeds should germinate in 21-30 days.
