Growing Method of Alyssum Plant:

  • Sweet Alyssum is grown by direct seed sowing in pots, containers, and flower beds.
  • Seeds can be sown throughout the year, however best time to sow seeds is in September-October for winter flowering.
  • Seeds can also be sown in succession from September to January for continuous flower beds.
  • The garden soil should be well prepared and formed evenly. Soil should be aerated, porous with good drainage.
  • Before sowing the seeds, soil should be made slightly moist.
  • While sowing, the seeds should be mixed with an equal quantity of sand to obtain uniformity.
  • For beds and borders, seeds can be broadcasted directly and evenly on soil, and extra seedlings can be thinned later.
  • Immediately after sowing the seeds, water carefully with a fine rose-can.

  • Planting Distance: To have a mass effect, plant 15 to 30 cm apart.

    Watering: Daily light watering is needed for first few weeks of seedling growth and potted plants. Outdoor beds can be watered once a week by flood irrigation.

    Feeding: Fresh compost should be added to soil at the time of planting. Liquid cow dung manure is given every 15 days along with vermicompost.

    Plant care: Spray fungicides on young seedlings to avoid ‘damping off’.

    Bloom time: The plant's flower within six weeks after seed sowing.

    Deadheading: Remove fading flowers, to obtain the second flush of blooms.

    I had sprinkled these seeds in a small part of my garden few months ago and was amazed with the results.Within 5-6 days they started germinating and soon covered with little white flowers.They grow quickly, and spread fast.It was very easy to care for.Waiting for September to plant them in large area in my front yard.
