"Milady Lilac" is a wonderful and tolerant summer aster variety with dwarf growth, which is approx. 25 cm high. The flowers are dense, very full-bodied and hemispherical. Ideal for pots, balcony boxes or as an edge plant. A classic for a gardener.
Quantity: approx. 40 seeds
Sowing: Inside March - April, or sown directly on growing ground in May. Since the seeds are very small, they should not be sown too closely. Sprinkle a very thin make soil over the seeds. Watch out when watering seedlings - too much moisture can provoke black foot.
Planting: When the risk of night frost is minimal. Asters prefer a sunny place to grow, but also thrive in light shade. To ensure that there is enough nutrition, they are fertilized during the growing season. Must be well watered in during dry periods. Choose a new place for your asters every year, to avoid fungal infestation.
Flowering: from mid-July to October.
