Snapdragons

September 5, 2011

Went to the nursery to get some snapdragon seeds but couldn’t find any! Turns out they are Antirrhium – and they are going in today. I plan to put them in a bed on their own to produce cut flowers for in the house – plus maybe attract the odd bee for the vege garden. Reading the packet they may not be altogether straightforward though.

  1. As promised on the packet these seeds are tiny so I am not so optimistic that they will come up – supposed to germinate in 14-21 days and have flowers 12-14 weeks from sowing – something like mid Dec if all goes to plan.


  2. btw they are Chimes Mixed F1 hybrid variety


  3. no sign of any snapdragons yet
