Native to South Africa, Polygala myrtifolia Grandiflora, also called myrtle-leaf milkwort, is generally called sweet-pea shrub. The vibrant flowers add colour to the landscape but very small fragrance. The Grandiflora cultivar has leaves of the common Polygala myrtiflora species having a pointed end versus the shorter leaves. The plant is low-maintenance and does well in hotter climates. The U.S Department of Agriculture hardiness zones 9 and 10 are suggested for Polygala myrtifolia Grandiflora. The plant is damaged by temperatures below 20 to 25 degrees Fahrenheit. Sweet pea shrubs can increase from four to six feet high and just as extensive, but a more compact development pattern is produced by winter pruning. The plant grows in most soil types, is drought-tolerant and does well in shade or the sunshine.
Fill the seed tray and moisten the soil. The moisture content should sense related to some sponge. Whether the soil is over-saturated the seeds may rot.
Plant the seeds about 1/16 inch-deep in the planting medium. Cover the seeds together with the soil. Place the cover. If there isn’t any cover, use a plastic bag or plastic food wrap.
Set the seed tray in a warm location with sunlight. The temperature of the region should stay above 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep the soil moist while the seeds are germinate.
Once the sweet-pea seedlings arise in the soil remove the protect. Continue checking the crops. As they develop, observe for signs of pest or mildew issues. Remove seedlings that are molded or dead at the earliest opportunity.
Transplant the seedlings to person pots that are developing. By exposing the seedlings to the outside environment as the weather conditions, harden off the crops allow. Protect the crops from powerful winds or sudden temperature changes while they’ve been acclimating to the the outside.
Transfer the sweetpea bush to the backyard when the plants are suffering from sets of leaves. The plant does well in sunlight but will tolerate shade. Keep the soil round the sweetpea bush moist till it h AS has generated its self.
