Grow a garden filled with Basket of Gold Alyssum, from freshly harvested Alyssum saxatile flower seeds. Basket of Gold will produce mounds of golden-yellow blooms all summer long. The plants will grow to a mature height of roughly 8 to 12 inches tall. Due to its low growth habit, Basket of Gold is popularly used as a groundcover. Its sweet scented blooms will attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden as well. Bumblebees, honeybees, butterflies & hummingbirds will cling to these plants, making it a perfect addition to any butterfly garden, or beneficial insectary.


Basket of Gold Alyssum is categorized as an annual flowering plant. Simply put, the plants will grow from freshly harvested seeds, bloom profusely through the summer months and later die with the first killing frost. The plants can regrow the following year, if seeds fall to the bare ground beneath. You can also collect seeds from your Alyssum flowers when they are dried out, by the end of the Autumn season.


Alyssum plants, such as Basket of Gold, will go great in pots and containers because of their short growth habit. They also look great in flower beds, raised beds, widow boxes, along borders, driveways, walkways & fences. Their carpet of golden-yellow blooms will act as a versatile groundcover & you may even consider adding these beautiful annuals in a rock garden as well. Combine Basket of Gold with our Carpet of Snow Alyssum for a beautiful color contrast of yellow on white. Carpet of Snow grows to a height of about 6 inches tall and will grow in the same conditions as well.

SOWING THE SEED

Alyssum flowers are best established directly outdoors, when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Begin by clearing your sowing area of all unwanted plant life. Turn the dirt, or replace it with fresh soil. Scatter your Alyssum seeds (in groups of 4) to the surface of the soil, lightly covering the seed with 1/16” of topsoil.


Alyssum seeds can also be started indoors, in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow 3 to 4 seeds per pot, at a shallow depth of 1/16” under topsoil. Transplant when all danger of frost has passed, later in the season.

GROWING CONDITIONS

Alyssum seeds & plants aren’t too picky on growing conditions. An area of full sunlight is recommended, as well as temperatures of at least 65F to 70F. The soil doesn’t need to be rich in organic matter, but it will need to be well drained for successful growth. It is best to add a light compost to any areas that contain hard, compact soil to improve drainage. Water daily with a moderate moisture setting until germination occurs.

GERMINATION & GROWTH

Your Alyssum seeds will begin to sprout within 7 to 21 days after sowing. The plants will grow to a short height of only 8 to 12 inches tall and can be spaced roughly 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Basket of Gold produces lovely clusters of golden-yellow flowers. Because of its short height, it is perfect as a ground cover and is also great in rock gardens as well.
