Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow outdoors, March-May, where they are to flower, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Sow two seeds together every 30cm (12"). Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Remove the weaker plant, which can be transplanted if desired. Water well until young plants are established. Or sow indoors, March-May, 1.5cm (½") deep, individually in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or greenhouse. Keep the compost moist. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, 30cm (12") apart. Flowers: June to September.

Hint's & Tips

Easy to grow, but if garden pests are a problem, start seeds indoors. Bees are attracted to the flowers to feed on the nectar produced.
