Green Bells of Ireland Seeds 5065

Availability: In stock (8)

Green Bells of Ireland Seeds 5065 Heirloom Flower. Interesting looking plant with flower stems composed of shells of green bells closely set around the central stalk.  Often the bells are placed so tight on the stalk there is little room for leaves. The tiny white flowers are actually found at the base of the green bells. The blooming stems can be cut and used in fresh arrangements. When dried, the bells will turn a light brown colour. Plants typically grow to 60 cm (2"²) in height. If the weather is hot, flower stalks are elongated and the bells (bracts) are spaced further apart.

How To Grow

150 seed/gram. Sow seed indoors in a soil-less mix in early April, pre-chilling at 0 C (32 F) for 10 to 12 days. Move to 21 C (70 F) for germination. Be patient as Bells of Ireland is a sporadic germinator. After germination, grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny site in the garden. Direct sowing outdoors is more successful if the seed is sown in mid April.
