This perennial can grow up to 1.2 metres tall. Ideal feature plant in any garden or allotment. Once established needs only minimal care. Torch lilly plants will flower in the second year.
Sow the kniphofia seeds about 0.5 cm deep in February/April inside or in a heated greenhouse. Use a tray and fine seed compost; for best results, put the tray in a polyethylene bag and try to keep at a temperature of around 15-18 Celsius. Keep the soil moist.
When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on inside.
Plant out into permanent position in the summer, when large and strong enough to resist the wind.
