How To Harvest Verbena?
Excellent Verbena varieties are the primary condition for increasing yield. We should also set up another seed field while planting verbena. The planting method is the same as that of ordinary plants. During the period, we should strengthen field management and properly apply phosphorus and potassium fertilizer before Verbena flowering, so as to make Verbena plants full of seeds and obtain more improved varieties.
When Verbena seeds are about to mature, they can be harvested. The harvested Verbena seeds can be put in a ventilated and dry shade for 4 ~ 6 days, and then they can be threshed. Remove impurities and shriveled seeds, dry them for about 3 to 4 days, put Verbena seeds into clean cloth bags, and then put them in a ventilated warehouse for Verbena promotion next year.
When planting Verbena seeds, ensure that its humidity and temperature are suitable, so that seedlings will grow in about 10 ~ 20 days.
