Description

PLEASE NOTE: This is a seed packet


Great for cool, elegant colour in spring and early summer. Delightful pompon blooms, for a charming border plant.


Sow indoors for surest results, 0.5cm (1/4″) deep, in tray of compost. Water well and place in a cool frame, unheated greenhouse or on a warm kitchen widowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-42days. Transplant individually when large enough to handle to 8cm (3″) pots. (Always handle by a leaf, never by the stem.) Gradully accustom young plants to outside conditions before planting out 30cm (1′) apart.


Sow outdoors in a seed bed, 0.5cm (1/4″) deep into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2″) apart before planting out to flowering position in autumn.


Hint: The trimming back of dead stems after flowering will encourage the plants to remain as a compact clump.
