Growing Notes

  • Strawflowers will grow in poor soil, and require minimal watering once they are established.
  • Keep picking them and they will keep producing.

Harvesting Notes

  • For fresh flowers harvest when fully open and you can see the yellow centres, these are less likely to get droopy heads.
  • For drying harvest when they are in bud, as they will keep opening once picked.
