50+ A favorite long-blooming annual that's packed with color! Grow Nemesia seeds for this compact little plant that's perfect for the garden border or for containers. This variety of Nemesia features masses of petite blue flowers with white eyes that cover each bushy plant. The blue Nemesia plant is a particularly charming cottage garden specimen. Blue Nemesia is spectacular in cool, maritime areas or mountain gardens where nights remain cool throughout summer. Nemesia plants are not known for their heat tolerance as they tend to fade in the hot, humid days of summer.
How to grow Nemesia from flower seed: Sow Nemesia seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks before last frost. Sow flower seed on surface of starter compost and gently firm down compost, only lightly cover. Keep soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light. When the Nemesia seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 3 inch pots and grow in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatize the young Nemesia seedlings to outdoor conditions. As seedlings grow, pinch back 1 - 2 times to encourage compact growth. Transplant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed, 6 inches apart. Or directly sow Nemesia seeds outdoors in prepared beds when danger of frost has passed. Thin to 6 inches apart
