Immortelle thrives in a Mediterranean climate. It enjoys dry and rocky soil that water and moisture easily passes through.

Immortelle planting seeds are very small seeds, that need to be taken care of while planting. It is easy to plant a few thousand seedlings without realizing it!

If you are thinking about planting immortelle and creating a plantation, be sure that you will need a greenhouse to get your seedlings started. You can start seedlings in the fall to have them ready for planting in the spring, or you can start them in the spring, and have them ready for planting in the fall.
Once your seedlings are grown and ready to be transplanted in your garden or field, it's important to plan this move before executing it. If you are planting in your garden, it is easy to water your immortelle. But if you are planting thousands of seedlings in a large field, make sure you plan ahead.
I always recommend to new immortelle growers to watch the weather and plant immortelle when you believe it will be a rainy week. Even though immortelle does not need much water when fully grown, it does need watering when they are small seedlings. It is important to water your immortelle in the beginning, to ensure strong immortelle seedlings that will grow into nice large immortelle bushes!

Since the immortelle harvest is only twice per year, planting seeds are not something our company can manufacture or produce in a factory. We have to wait for the natural process to occur and when it is time to harvest seeds. If you are interested in purchasing seeds and they are currently available in our shop, we suggest not waiting because they might be sold out the next time you visit, meaning you will have to wait until the next season’s harvest!
