Last year on a visit to an 'open garden' we saw some beautiful graceful pink flowers which turned out to be Dieramas. The lady said they self set from seed hence various clumps here and there.
I couldnt find any trace of them in the Garden Centres but my husband found some seed available on line.
18 seeds shared 9/9 with my brother. The instructions said to keep newly planted pots warm in winter but that they could be sown outdoors...confusing.
My brother put his in a greenhouse and mine are on the bathroom windowsill. He has 4 left and I have 8 but although they are now 3 to 4 inches tall and look like little tufts of grass, some 'blades' are turning brown. On the whole though they seem ok.
Advice please as to when to plant them outside or when to move them out to the greenhouse.
Is it best to keep them in little pots until they are larger and if so should I repot them?
Are they suitable for growing in containers full time?
I understand that they wont flower for up to 5 years but Im keen to have some because they are so lovely and I dont want to kill the ones I have.
Everything Ive read points to them being difficult, slow growing,easily upset plants but Im more than willing to wait and need to know please, from someone who has grown them rather than from a text-book, the best way to care for them.
