Description

PLEASE NOTE: This is a seed packet


Tall, unusual ‘snaps with tongues’. Approx. 1 in 6 Snapdragons have a ‘tongue in their mouth’.


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 15-20oC (60-68oF) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28days. Transplant seedlings 5cm (2″) apart to other trays when 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 25cm (10″) apart, when frosts are over.


Hints: Pinch out the central growing tips when plants are 10cm (4″) high for bushier plants. Remove dead flowers to prolong flowering season.
