Richly fragrant and cheerfully coloured blooms. Great in spring beds, borders and large containers.
Sow outdoors, April-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 seedlings to 5cm (2″) apart, when large enough to handle. Plant out to flowering position, September-November, allowing 23cm (9″) between plants. Flowers: March to May, the following year.
Tip: To encourage a bushy habit and more flowers, pinch out the central growing tips when plants are 1-15cm (4-6″) high.
