Growing Method of Salvia Blue Flower:
Planting Distance: Spacing of 30-60 cm is recommended in the ground. Plants can be grown in 30 cm pot.
Watering: The plants like liberal watering. Salvias planted in the garden are watered twice a week, and potted ones are watered every alternate day.
Feeding: Salvias like fertile soil. When planted in the container it prefers a rich mixture of soil and cow dung manure in the proportion of 1:1. Too much nitrogen fertilization will produce leafy growth and delay flowering. Application of a well-balanced liquid fertilizer once a week is recommended.
Plant care: Spray fungicides on young seedlings to avoid ‘damping off.'
Bloom time: Salvia flowers in 3.5-4 months after sowing. Buy variety of flower seeds online.
