A classic, fast growing cottage garden favourite. Sown where it is to flower. Easy and reliable. Perfect for cut flowers, beds and borders.
Sow outdoors where they are to flower, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14–28 days. Thin seedlings to 20cm (8”) apart. Water well until plants are established. For a continuous display, make sowings at two to three weekly intervals. Sowings made in curves rather than straight lines often create a more pleasing effect. Late summer and autumn sowings will flower the following year, often earlier than spring sowings.
Tip: Remove dead flowers to prolong flowering season. Butterflies and bees love these flowers and will be attracted into the garden.
