Shades of blue, pink and white form this delightful mix. An excellent cut flower.
Sow outdoors, March-May or August-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 them to 15cm (6″) apart and water well until plants are established. For a continuous display, make sowings at two to three-week 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. Flowers: May to September.
Tip: Remove dead heads to prolong the flowering season. For dried arrangements, cut stems, once flowers fade and attractive seed pods appear, then hang upside down in a dry, airy place until ready.
