Description

Beautiful bold colours for early summer borders, the ideal variety for small gardens and patio tubs. A hardy perennial, flowers the same year from an early sowing.

Sow indoors to flower the same year, 0.5cm (¼in) deep, in a tray of compost. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-42 days. Transplant individually when large enough to handle to 8cm (3in) pots. (Always hold seedlings by a leaf, never by the stem.) Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions before planting out 60cm (2ft) apart, when frosts are over.
Or sow outdoors to flower the following year, in a seed bed, 0.5cm (¼in) deep, into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2in) apart before planting out to flowering position in autumn, spacing 60cm (2ft) apart. Caution: Harmful if eaten.

Tip: Early indoor sowings flower the same year, usually between August and September. In subsequent years plants flower from May to July.
