Nicandra Physaloides (Apple of Peru) - when to sow ?
Wiltshire, United Kingdom
I saw this fabulous plant at an NT site on a day out today. I have never come across it before and was fascinated. One of the gardeners told me what it was, and yanked off some seed heads for me, bless her. Can't believe it's an annual - more like a shrub, but I did detect the 'physalis' type seed sack. So - when do I sow the seed ? Does it do best if I sow it before winter so it gets the frost, or is it better in Spring ? Also - straight into the soil, or in pots and transplant ?
