Alyssum is a low
growing annual that is known for its carpet of sweet smelling white, violet or
purple colored flowers. It grows and flowers best during the coolest parts of
the summer in New England, but in northern and coastal areas can be in flower
all summer long. The narrow hairy leaves are inconspicuous when alyssum is in
full flower. Bees, butterflies and other insects love alyssum making it a good
plant in a pollinator garden. In my garden it will self-sow readily and become
a permanent fixture each year. However, I still like to replant new varieties
each spring for added color and to grow more vigorous plants.
When and How to Plant Alyssum
Grow alyssum in
well-drained, humusy soil that holds moisture well in the summer. Hot, dry
spells cause alyssum to stop flowering and potentially dieback. Alyssum needs
at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sun to flower well. Grow alyssum planted
directly in the garden from seed, started as seedlings indoors 8 to 10 weeks
before the last frost date, or purchased as a transplant from the local garden
center. Alyssum started directly in the garden from seed will bloom later than
those started or purchased as transplants. Sow seeds or plant transplants in
spring after all danger of frost has passed. Simply sprinkle seeds in the soil
bed and lightly press them into the soil. Keep the soil evenly moist and they
will germinate within one week. Grow alyssum tightly together in groups spaced
only 6 inches apart to create a quicker flowering carpet effect.
well-watered during hot, dry weather. It has few pests and diseases. In mid
summer to stimulate more growth and flowering shear your alyssum plants by
1/3rd of their height. Fertilize afterward with a balanced product and water
and they will regrow for a late summer flower show. When grown in containers or
small spaces with little soil, fertilize monthly to keep them growing strong.
Advice and Alyssum Care
self-sow readily in our climate. However, the seedlings tend to have poorer
quality flowers so it’s best to remove them and start again with fresh seed or
transplants each year.
Planting and Design
Sweet alyssum grows
best where it can be showcased. Plant or sow seeds in front of flower borders,
in containers with other taller growing annuals, such as salvia and profusion
zinnias, and in walls or rock gardens among other low growing perennials and
wildflowers, such as columbine.
All seeds will come in a resalable
plastic zip lock bag and placed in a bubble envelope so the seeds are not
damaged by shipping machines. All seed packets contain no fillers or other
weeds or seeds mixed in. Most have been harvested by hand & all test at a
high germination rate.
that all seed orders will contain the quantity ordered. Unlike many sellers who
sell seeds by weight, all seed our counts are almost always correct, as the
seeds are packaged and counted by hand. Seed packages are all double checked to
insure accuracy. We do our best and will often add extra seeds.
We are a seller that caters to
experienced gardeners. (germination and plant care information is readily
available online. Most of our listings include germination instructions, so we
do not ship growing instructions.

***Note: It is normal for tropical seed germination to be sporadic
from as little as 30 days to 6 months or more- so patience is required. Buyers
should do their own research for plant uses if needed.
BE PREPARED – Some Seed can be somewhat difficult to germinate – much
patience and time may be required – please don’t be wondering why the seeds
have not germinated after short periods of time. This is normal. Several months
will be needed for some seed.
Some seeds require some experience
in growing. We provide germination guidance and recommend that you do some
research before ordering if you feel unsure. Growing plants from seed is
supposed to be fun. Sometimes it is successful and sometimes not- this is the
way it is with gardening. Because we are not there to plant them, we cannot be
responsible for germination failure due to improper planting or climate
conditions. We will always send you viable seeds
Seed is a
live product which depends on many important grower skills such as proper
planting time, seed depth, type of soil, watering, light intensity, proper use
of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, soil conditions, and
reasonable weather during the growing period. These factors are totally out of
the sellers control, and germination and growing results are the buyer’s
responsibility and risk.
