Bupleurum Green Gold
Bupleurum Green Gold, also known as thoroughwax and hare’s ear, is a classic filler for bouquets. This is, of course, because it has an exceptionally long vase life: it can last well up to 10 days. The upright plant produces yellow-lime-green flowers on long, sturdy stems.

Annual flower seeds
All our flower seeds produce flowers that are suitable for use as cut flowers. They are also used by professional nurseries and floriculture companies. For flower seeds to be considered high-quality, they need to have outstanding germination capacity and energy and therefore yield a high percentage of flowering plants. All seeds are annuals, which means that they have a lot of growing power: they go through all the stages – from a seed to a flowering plant that, in turn, produces new seeds – in the space of just one season. Most flowers bloom for about three to five months. A rule of thumb in this is that the more flowers you pick, the faster they will grow back! All our seeds are untreated and uncoated, and are also suitable as starting material for growing organic flowers.
- Plant in moist soil to which the seeds stick for best germination.
- Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil of approx. 0.5 cm.
- Grow in fertile, well-drained soil.
- Give them a sunny spot and sufficient protection from strong winds. Support if necessary.
- Water regularly.
Harvest Bupleurum flowers as soon as the flowerheads start to show colour. If you want to dry the flowers, wait until they open completely and then hang them up to dry. Sow directly in the spot where you want them to stand.
