One of the brightest, most free-flowering summer gems. Double and semi-double wavy-edged blooms in a lovely range of colours. An excellent border and cut flower.
Sow outdoors, March-May or September-October, where they are to flower, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin seedlings to 20cm (8″) apart. For a longer display, make a later second sowing. Water well until plants are established. 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. Flowers: June-September.
Godetia can easily be sown directly into patio containers for easy summer colour.
