Today Darrin & Vauhgan have been busy getting our Statice plants into the ground. Every plant has to be carefully planted the right distance apart to allow the roots to fill out and a healthy plant to grow. We’re very lucky here with our soil and climate which are near perfect for growing but Statice is a difficult crop to grow, too much damp in the air like last summer can cause lots of problems so hopefully this year it will be a little dryer.
Although the weather plays a major roll in growing our decisions can be just as important. Every year we keep detailed records of which varieties fair best in our climate and the following year we weed out the varieties which don’t fair so well in favour of new ones. This year we also have a few new varieties on trial which we’re looking forward to seeing flower.
