OUR HAWAIIAN BABY WOODROSE
Our Hawaiian Baby Woodrose (Indian strain) is higher quality because it’s freshly harvested by knowledgeable family farmers in India, as well as it is stored in the cold and dark.
HOW TO CULTIVATE
Sow your Hawaiian baby woodrose seeds in early spring inside if you are in zone 5. Nick the seeds with a craft knife first and soak them for 24 hours. Plant them 1/2 inch deep and 5 feet apart, in sandy and only moderately fertile soil, along a wall, fence or pergola which they can climb.
