PLANT PROPAGATION
Propagation methods: seeds, scrub division, rhizome parts. Seeds are sown into boxes or cold beds in Autumn. Seedlings are replanted into boxes, later in the final growing place. Seedlings are weak, so they must be protected from the direct sun. Flower bloom in the third or fourth year. Seeds are small. 6000 -10000 seeds per 1 gram. The plant is propagated by rhizome parts in Spring or Autumn (August). Rhizome parts are planted in beds with 30-40 cm distance. Some leaves can be cut off. Plants should be watered during the first two weeks.
