Amaranthus cruentus Autumn’s Touch flower seeds
The cruentus is one of three Amaranthus species cultivated as a grain source. Autumn’s Touch is more likely selected to be used as a “cut flower” or bouquet filler for its fantastic color! Amaranthus is very easy to grow and you can harvest loads of stems throughout the summer. The stems have tall spikes of pistachio-green with bronze tones. Depending on when you sow the seeds this variety will flower from June till October.

How do you grow Amaranthus Autumn’s Touch from seed?
Growing amaranthus from seed is not difficult. We sow the seeds a few weeks before the last expected frost date. We either geminate them at home or on a heat mat. When the seedlings have emerged and the weather is not too cold we bring seedlings to the greenhouse. If the nights are cold we add a layer of fleece over the plants. As soon as the last expected frost date has passed we plant out the young plants 30 to 50 cm apart. You can also direct sow the seeds after the last frost date. If you grow them for your personal cutting garden you can plant them closer than when you like to grow them as ornamental garden plants.
Plants grow best in rich soil. We grow them on no-dig beds and add 2,5 cm compost every year (Charles Dowding method). The plants get tall and may require some support.
