This overwinter variety is one of the earliest to flower and one of the most fragrant. Many double blooms.
Sow outdoors, May-July, in a seed bed, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin them to 15cm (6″) apart when large enough to handle. Keep moist and weed free. Or, transplant individually, to 7.5cm (3″) pots and overwinter in a cold frame. Plant out to flowering position, September-October, allowing 20cm (8″) between plants. Flowers: April to June.
Tip: Grow in a sheltered spot to protect the blooms and to allow the perfume to linger.
