Blanket Flower (Gaillardia Aristata Nana) - One of the first plants to start blooming and one of the last to stop! Grow these bright yellow treasures from Gaillardia seeds! Gaillardia Aristata is known as Blanket Flower, and they are indeed a treasured native from the open, hot plains so they will do best in that sort of environment. Blanket Flower is a perennial which returns each spring from the same roots, forming an expanding clump. Blanket Flower is also a great plant for the flower garden because it attracts beneficial insects and butterflies to the garden.

SOWING:
Sow March to April on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Lightly cover the seed with vermiculite. Place sown pots or trays in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F) . After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 14-21 days. When large enough to handle transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.
