Plants become smothered in small fragrant blooms. Easy to grow and long lasting.

Sow indoors 0.5cm (1/4″) deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 10-15oC (50-60oF) is ideal. Keep moist. Transplant seedlings 5cm (2″) apart to other tray when large enough to handle. (Always handle by a leaf, never by the stem.) Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 15cm (6″) apart, when frosts are over.

Sow outdoors where they are to flower, 0.5cm (1/4″) deep, directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28days. Thin seedlings to 15cm (6″) apart. Water well until plants are established and keep weed free.

Hints: When the first flowers fade, trim back the plants to encourage further flushes of colour.
