PLEASE NOTE: This is a seed packet
Versatile, dwarf plants with soft fluffy flowers. Great for borders, summer bedding and containers.
Sow indoors, a warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow 0.5cm (1/4″) deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 20-25oC (68-77oF) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 10-21 days. Transplant when seedlings are large enough to handle. (Always handle by a leaf, never by the stem.) Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 15cm (6″) apart, when frosts are over.
Hints: To encourage a bushy habit and more flowers, pinch out the central growing tips when plants are 10cm (4″) high.
Soil Type: Well drained, fertile
Position: Part shade
