It’s time to plant another round of gypsophila. These days I couldn’t do without this plant – it’s so on trend. One large vase full of these dainty looking blooms is simply gorgeous. You may find Gypsophila elegans seedlings in garden centres if you’re lucky, otherwise you can get seeds from Trade Me or Gstuff. Egmont Seeds has a pink version, Gypsophila muralis ‘Gypsy Pink’, and GardenPost has the pink Gypsophila elegans ‘Deep Carmine’. I’m currently growing the latter, which is lovely. These are all annuals. If you want a perennial type, look for Gypsophila paniculata varieties, such as ‘Virgo’ from King Seeds.
In the garden, apply a tomato fertiliser when the flower stalks emerge and keep plants well watered.
