50 of Dwarf Pink Candytuft Seeds Flower Perennial Flowers Seed Bloom
DescriptionThe candytuft plant (Iberis sempervirens) is a European native that has adapted well to most USDA zones. The 12- to 18-inch beauty is a flowering, evergreen perennial with a few must do’s for appropriate candytuft care and continued performance.Choosing Seed ContainersUse a seed-starting tray or a pot with drainage holes to start your candytuft seeds. You can also use an empty, plastic butter or yogurt container. When using the latter, pierce holes through the bottom so excess water can drain out. Rinse the container to remove any debris, and soak it for about 15 minutes in a sanitizing mixture of 9 parts water and 1 part bleach. After allowing the container to air-dry, you're ready to sow the seeds.Sowing the SeedsAfter filling your seed-starting container up to 1/2 inch from the top with moist seed-starting mix, tamp down the soil so it's firm. Spread the candytuft seeds evenly over the soil surface and cover them with a layer of soil that's two times their diameter. If you dislike thinning and transplanting, you can skip this by using individual 3-inch peat pots. After sowing the seeds, moisten the top layer of soil with a water-filled spray bottle. This prevents washing away the candytuft seeds.GerminationWhile the seeds are germinating, it's essential to keep the seed-starting mix moist. Cover the seed-raising container with a piece of plastic wrap to maintain a steady humidity level. Candytuft requires a warm area to germinate -- a temperature range of 65 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal. If needed, place a heat mat below the seed container. Regularly check the container mist the soil with water to keep it moist. Candytuft seeds germinate within 16 to 20 days.After GerminationWhen you see seedlings, remove the plastic wrap and place the container near a sunny window. After the last frost, when the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them outside. Space them 6 to 12 inches apart and thin them when they need more growing space. To thrive, candytuft requires full sun and well-drained soil. When grown in partial shady areas, the plants may not produce as many flowers. In cooler climates, grow candytuft in containers, so you can easily protect them from frost damage.
