Flower Garden - Tips on Growing Gazina From Seeds

Gazanias grow in rosette form with attractive notched leaves. Flowers rise 8 to 12 inches on short stems. They're white, pink, bronze, red, yellow, and orange with banded markings. Flowers close on cloudy days.

  • Gazanias prefer full sun and moderately fertile but well-drained soil. They do not like heavy soil in hot, humid climates. Plant out as soon as the danger of frost has passed at 8 to 15 inches apart.
  • Sow Gazania seeds outdoors after final frost or plant them indoors four to six weeks earlier. Seeds germinate in 15 to 20 days at 70 degrees º.
  • Plant Gazanias in the front of beds and borders. Use them as a ground cover in sunny, dry areas or in rock gardens.

 

 

To be sure about pH, test the soil with a pH meter. Apply fertilizer and lime using the results of the soil test as a guide.

  • It is recommended that you use a relatively inexpensive, and follow the manufacturers instructions when testing the pH Level of your Gardens soil. To raise or lower the pH level in the soil either Limestone or Sulfur is utilized. Other materials will accomplish the same results; however the two that are listed are the most commonly used.

  • Limestone is added to the soil to raise the pH level because limestone is essentially calcium and calcium reacts with water in the soil to yield hydroxyl ions .. a process known as, hydrolysis = thus the pH level in the soil is raised.

  • Sulfur reacts with bacteria in the soil and produces sulfuric acid, which releases hydrogen ions thus causing the soil to become more acidic =the pH level is lowered. 

 

Application Of Lime (To Raise Soil pH)

To increase your pH by 1.0 point and make your soil more alkaline.

 
  • Add 4 ounces of hydrated lime per square yard in sandy soils

  • Add 8 ounces of hydrated lime per square yard in loamy soils

  • Add 12 ounces of hydrated lime per square yard in clay soils

  • Add 25 ounces of hydrated lime per square yard in peaty soils

  • The addition of ash, bone meal, or crushed oyster shells will also help to raise soil pH levels.

 

Application of Sulfur (To Lower Soil pH)

If your soil needs to be more acidic, sulfur will lower the pH if it is available.

To reduce the soil pH by 1.0 point

  • Mix in 1.2 oz of ground rock sulfur per square yard if the soil is sandy

  • Mix in 3.6 oz per square yard for all other soils.

  • Composted leaves, wood chips, sawdust, leaf mold and peat moss, will also help to lower the soil pH.
