How to Sow and Care for Osmanthus Fragans
In a shallow container filled with warm tap water, soak the seeds of Sweet Osmanthus for twenty-four hours. Embryos in the seed shell will be plumped up by water penetrating through the shell. Once seeds are planted, they should be moist. In spring, you can start seeds by soaking them and placing them in a sandwich bag halfway filled with wet, seed-starting medium, followed by another inch of starter medium on top of the seeds. This should be chilled before planting. Transplant the seeds into pots once they sprout roots. After germinating, seedlings should be placed in a sheltered area.
The Sweet Osmanthus plants should be planted 120 to 150 cm apart to form a hedge or screen. It is best to grow sweet osmanthus flowers in full sunlight or partial shade with well-drained soil. The plants are relatively drought-tolerant once established, but they perform best with plenty of water.
A newly planted Osmanthus shrub needs regular irrigation until it is established and grows. Thereafter, it only needs to be rinsed during prolonged periods of drought. Apply a general-purpose fertilizer to your garden during the fall. Now you simply have to wait.
