How to grow:
If growing Verbana outdoors from seeds, then sow out following the last frost of spring, then lightly cover the seed. Due to the large variety in Verbana size the spacing is species dependent, in general plant small Verbana about 20cm apart, medium Verbana at 30 to 40cm, and larger Verbana at 60cm to a metre apart. Ideally Verbana should be grown in a fertile soil that is slightly acidic to neutral (pH 6 to 7). they like to grow in sunny part of the garden, but can tolerate partial shade if needed. 
If growing Verbana indoors first then sow about two months before the last frost. The Verbana seeds should first be sown into a pot; next cover with a plastic bag; put in the fridge for two weeks; then allow to germinate in the dark at a temperature of 18 to 24 degrees centigrade. Verbana seeds should take from two weeks to three months to germinate. Transplant the young Verbana plants outdoors a few weeks after the last frost of spring.
