Tried these for …

by

Tried these for first time this year.wow! What an impact they make. Have put them in all sorts of conditions around the garden and have displays everywhere. Seeds so good I had to give away many seedlings as I couldn't fit them in my garden. Mom and sister loving them too. A great buy!

Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow indoors for surest results, February-April, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Transplant them, 5cm (2") apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-June, 30cm (12") apart, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors for ease, April-May, where they are to flower, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings as required. Water well until plants are established. Flowers: July to October.

Hint's & Tips

Remove dead heads to prolong the flowering season. An excellent cut flower, if cut when buds begin to colour.
