Sowing Guide

Early Sowing/Module Sowing

Sow Gaillardia seeds on the surface of damp compost in containers, modules or trays.
Lightly firm the seeds into the surface of the compost. Do not cover.
Place the container in a clear plastic bag and seal or place in a propagator if preferred. Do not exclude light as this will help with germination.
Once the seeds start to germinate remove from the bag or propagator and place in an area with a reduced temperature and good daylight exposure.
Keep the young vulnerable seedlings away from frost.
When the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into 7.5 cm pots.
Plant out in groups of 4 to 5 plants when they are growing strong (2 to 3 weeks after transplanting).
Before planting out, harden off over 7 - 10 days.

Direct Sowing

For best results start the plants indoors.

Growing On

Water the newly planted Gaillardia well until established.
Dead-head regularly to encourage more flowers to grow.
Water well over the summer months.
In late summer before the first frosts arrive cut the plants back to about 15 cm from the ground. This will encourage new growth which will help the plant to survive over the winter months.


If sown early the plants should flower in their first year.
