A Real Irish Shamrock: Growing Instructions

A Real Irish Shamrock: Growing Instructions

Did you purchase our Real Shamrock Seeds and wonder how to grow them to make sure they are perfect?

While experienced gardeners have their own tried and trusted methods, our aim is to provide as much information to ensure successful growing. We feel that this is an important feature: an essential tool for the new gardener, a helpful reference for the more experienced and the perfect accompaniment to seeds given as gifts!

When you order our Real Irish Shamrock Seeds & Original Irish Dirt duo, we attach A5 information sheet that gives you all necessary information. We hope that you find this helpful!

Sowing: 

Sow at any time of year.
Seeds can be sown in small pots or trays using any moist, well drained soil mix. For best results, using a packaged seed starting mix is recommended.
The seeds which are very small should be distributed on the moist soil surface and lightly covered with additional soil. The pot or tray should be placed in a warm shaded location until the seeds have germinated, which will be in about a week. Keep the soil moist and do not allow soil to dry out.
After the seeds germinate and leaves appear move to a sunny location.
When two or three clover leaves have formed, you can begin fertilising with an all-purpose fertiliser at the recommended rate for the container. If necessary, thin-out weak plants. Plants should fill out in 6 to 8 weeks.

 

Transplanting: 

Transplant to a larger container when roots appear out the bottom of the pot or tray. Be careful not to damage the roots when transplanting. After transplanting continue fertilization as before.

 

Cultivation:

Keep plants well watered (make sure container drains well) and keep in a sunny location. Try to keep tips in contact with the soil and remove any damaged leaves. "Runners" that extend over the pot or tray edge can be cut off at the soil surface. Although the runners that grow over the edge will eventually wither and die off if they can't root.
Outdoor care is the same as indoor care, except increase the fertilization to the recommended outdoor amount for container plants. Clover can also be planted in outdoor beds and wildflower meadows.
Shamrocks growing tall and spindly is usually a result of not enough light or they are too warm. If the leaves are yellowing is it usually a sign of over watering.
Shamrocks do not get along with other houseplants in mixed pots. They are best grown with just other shamrocks all together in a crowded pot.

 

Dormancy: 

Trifolium grow tired now and again and begin to look a bit droopy and the leaves turn brown. Stop watering, relocate them to a darker place while the dormant period lasts. Dormancy usually occurs a few times each year lasting 2 to 3 months. A good time to repot them would be after they've been dormant.

 

Growing instructions were created by experienced gardeners based in Galway who guarantee the highest quality of our Shamrock Seeds.
