Details

A really pretty frilly Spencer type, with a medium sweet scent. This special variety commemorates the sailing of the historic Mayflower Pilgrim ship. Blooms have a lovely bright pink pattern. It can be sown where it is to flower.

The year 2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the historic 1620 voyage of the Mayflower ship from the UK to the ‘New World’ of America. The anniversary will commemorate the legacy of the passengers and crew who undertook the epic journey inspired by an unquenchable desire for freedom; and for whom the voyage promised newfound liberty.

Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow indoors for surest results, 1.5cm (½”) deep, 5 seeds per 12cm (5”) pot of compost. Water well and keep at approx. 15°C (60°F) is ideal. Seedlings usually appear in 12-21 days. Keep moist. Pinch out the growing tip when two pairs of leaves have formed to encourage bushy growth. Accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 30cm (1’) apart. Support with tall canes or netting.

Sow outdoors for ease, where they are to flower, 1.5cm (½”) deep into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Sow 2 seeds together every 30cm (1’). Remove weaker seedling, which can then be transplanted. Provide plants with support.
