How to grow:
When growing Gaura outdoors from seed sow annual varieties just after the last frost of spring and perennial varieties either at the start of autumn or the start of spring; lightly cover the Gaura seeds once sown. Ideally Gaura should be spaced at about 60 to 90cm apart and grown in a sunny part of the garden that has good drainage and an ordinary soil. 
If starting off indoors then sow Gaura seeds about 5 weeks (annuals) or 10 weeks (perennials) in advance. Gaura germination takes from two to five weeks at a temperature of 18 to 24 degrees centigrade. Transplant annual Gaura varieties out in the garden following the last frost; transplant perennials in the autumn or just before the last frost
