How to grow:
When growing members of Limonium species, annuals should be sown after the last frost of spring, whilst perennials planted before the last frost. Once sown simply cover the seeds. Sea Pink and other Limonium like to grow in sunny areas of the garden that have light sandy and dry soil. 
If first planning to start off sea pink and other Limonium indoors then the growing process should start about two months before the last frost of spring is expected. They take around two to three weeks to germinate at 18 to 24 degrees centigrade. Once growing the young plants should be spaced at about 30cm (small Limonium species) to 50cm (larger varieties of Limonium).
