Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow outdoors where they are to flower, 1.5cm (½in) deep, directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Sow two seeds together every 45cm (18in). 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 1.5cm (½in) deep, individually in pots of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or greenhouse. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 45cm (18in) apart.

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.
