How to grow:
It is best to start off Immortelle indoors. Sow the Immortelle seeds in peat pots about three weeks before the last frost of spring. It should take about two weeks for Immortelle and other Xeranthemum species to germinate at a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius. Once growing transplant the Immortelle seedling outdoors following the last frost at a spacing of 20 to 40cm. Ideally Immortelle should be grown in a sunny part of the garden; the soil type is not too important.
