Cultivation Advice
  • Plant Nemesia Strumosa Carnival Mixture seeds indoors around 8-10 weeks before the last expected frost date. They prefer cooler temperatures for germination.
  • Once seedlings have developed a few sets of true leaves and the threat of frost has passed, transplant them outdoors. Choose a location with well-draining soil and partial sun.
  • Provide well-draining, fertile soil for optimal growth. Work in compost or organic matter to improve soil texture and nutrient content.
  • Sow the seeds in pots or trays filled with a seed-starting mix. Press the seeds lightly into the soil but do not cover them, as they need light to germinate.
  • If transplanting seedlings outdoors, space them around 8-10 inches (20-25 cm) apart to allow for proper growth and airflow.
  • Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the germination and early growth stages. Once established, water when the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels dry.
  • Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half-strength once every two weeks during the growing season to promote healthy growth and flowering.
  • Apply a thin layer of mulch around the plants to retain soil moisture and suppress weed growth. Take care not to cover the seedlings too deeply.
  • Regularly deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming. Prune back leggy growth to promote a more compact and bushy habit.
  • Provide some shade during intense heat, especially in warmer climates, to prevent wilting and stress on the plants.
  • Monitor for pests like aphids or spider mites. Use natural remedies or insecticidal soap to address any issues promptly.
  • Harvest flowers for fresh-cut bouquets, as Nemesia Strumosa Carnival Mixture blooms make delightful additions to arrangements.
  • Encourage bushier growth by pinching back the growing tips when the seedlings are around 3-4 inches (7.6-10 cm) tall. This helps create a fuller plant.
  • Nemesias thrive in cooler temperatures. If you live in a hot climate, provide afternoon shade or use mulch to keep the soil cool.
  • Continual deadheading of spent blooms not only encourages more flowers but also prevents the plant from setting seeds too early, promoting prolonged flowering.
  • If the plant becomes leggy or stops flowering, give it a light trim or prune back by one-third. This can rejuvenate the plant and encourage new growth and flowering.
  • In mild climates, Nemesias can overwinter and bloom again in the following season. Ensure proper care and protection from extreme cold.
  • Nemesia flowers attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, contributing to garden biodiversity and potentially aiding pollination of nearby plants.
  • Keep an eye on the plants for signs of stress, such as wilting or yellowing leaves, and address any issues promptly.
  • Consider growing Nemesia Strumosa Carnival Mixture in containers or hanging baskets, allowing for mobility and versatility in your garden or patio
  • Nemesia flowers have a pleasant fragrance, adding not just visual but olfactory appeal to your garden space.
  • Allow some flowers to mature and develop seeds. This can encourage self-seeding, yielding new plants in subsequent growing seasons.
  • Consider planting Nemesia Strumosa Carnival Mixture alongside other annuals or perennials to create beautiful mixed plantings and diversity in your garden.
  • Enjoy the pleasant fragrance emitted by these flowers, which can add a sensory dimension to your garden space.
  • Stagger planting times to enjoy continuous blooms throughout the growing season, ensuring a longer display of colorful flowers.
  • Be mindful that Nemesia Strumosa Carnival Mixture can self-seed vigorously. Regularly remove spent flowers to control reseeding if desired.
