HELECHRYSUM ( Straw flowers ) Annual Approximately 45,000 seeds per oz. Start seeds indoors in March. Use peat pots or flats with inserts and a good soil substitute, like Berger BM-2. Press seeds into soil surface, do not cover seeds, as they need light to germinate. Germinate at 70°-75°F. Transplant in mid-summer, 8″ apart, in a sunny, dry location. Seeds can also be sown outdoors in mid summer. Blooms make great dried flower arrangements or can be used in fall crafts. Cut blooms before
they are completely open. Hang upside down in a dry, cool location out of direct sunlight. Use when dry.
