If you have a large garden and you want to grow some very good plants, then you will need some Apium graveolens seeds. These Apium seeds are very rare and sought after. They have been known in the herb world for thousands of years and are grown mainly for their bitter taste. They have been used for the purpose of pest control in tropical and subtropical regions. This is why they grow quickly and are so hardy.
The Apium seeds can be planted in a wide variety of flower gardens, from small potted plants to a large perennial garden. You should however make sure that you get only the best Apium seeds, because even though they are rare they can also be quite pricey. That is why it is wise to get your Apium seeds from someone who has the good fortune to grow them themselves. You can get Apium from a friend who has a lovely garden or from a specialist, like a nursery. But whatever you do, don't get your Apium seeds from an online seed store.
The Apium seeds will produce flowers, but they won't grow unless they are sprayed with Apium. So when you buy Apium from an online seed store, you will probably get Apium graveolens. Apium graveolens flowering plants won't usually grow into plants unless they get sprayed with Apium.
Apium graveolens seeds are very easy to germinate and to start flowering. They can be sown in pots, in the fall, as soon as the last frosts have disappeared, or else you can get them seedlings by growing plants from cuttings taken from other plants. The reason for the latter method is that Apium graveolens seeds won't grow well on their own if they're not sown. If you want to grow the Apium seeds yourself and make sure they flower well, then take cutting from a mature plant. You can then put the cutting below the soil in a small plastic container.
The cuttings can be any kind of suitable plant like a sun-loving grass like Hydrocotyle bonariensis, a shade-loving shrub like Ascobalis vulgaris, or a flower-blooming herb like Ascobalinum officinarum. Cut the cuttings from the plant like this, and place them in a shallow tray with a little bit of water. Don't just put the cuttings in one huge pot - lots of room is needed for the plant to grow comfortably, and a healthy plant needs good drainage too. In a few days, you should have something that looks just like it's from a flowering plant.
It's easy to tell when the plant has grown too well because you'll see tiny little leaves on the underside of the pot. Wait for the first set of leaves to appear and remove them. They'll eventually fall off and separate themselves into little sections. You now have entire sections of live plants that you can take home and start growing in pots. When the Apium seeds dry out, they'll shrink back into their original bulbs (with their tiny little leaves still attached), and the bulbs will be ready to plant in your garden.
To protect the bulk Apium seeds from getting eaten by hungry animals or birds, place them inside a mesh basket. Remember that seeds and bulbs are heavy, so these will usually weigh quite a lot. A good mesh basket is made from strong netting that's woven tightly together, thus providing additional support as the plant grows. This way, the seeds won't be damaged by predators. Keep your Apium seeds in pots of their own kind, not in bulk quantity bought in bulk from garden shops.
Growing Apium in pots is one of the best ways to get an established plant quickly into growing shape. If you've never grown Apium in pots before, there really isn't any easier way! Apium graveolens seeds can be ordered online or from a local nursery, and you'll find that the plant itself is a spectacular addition to just about any garden, whether it's tropical deciduous, bonsai, or even container.
