✅ Start Gazania seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before last frost, or sow the ground cover seeds directly outdoors as soon as the soil is warm, in spring.
✅ Sow seed 1/4 inch deep in seed-starting formula. Firm lightly.
✅ Keep the soil moist, but not wet until established.
✅ Seedling emerge in 7-14 days at 68-86 °F.
✅ When they emerge put them in a bright space, a sunny windowsill or below a fluorescent light on 16 hours/day and off 8 hours at night.

All seeds germinated and plants are growing nicely and be ready for planting within the next two weeks.
These seeds germinated very quickly. Hopefully I'll get some flowers soon and I can provide an update.
I haven't started these seeds yet but I've ordered seeds from this seller before and they were great. High germination and true to variety.
I was hoping these flowers would grow, the color looked so beautiful. So far I have not had one seed germinate outdoors, directly seeded. I didn't use all of the seeds I received, so I'll try germinating some indoors, and writing another review if I get different results.
Decent germination percentage.
