Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

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. Keep moist and weed free. Plant out to flowering position, September-November, allowing 23cm (9") between plants. Flowers: May to July, the following year.

Hint's & Tips

Pinch out growing tip when approx. 1cm (4") tall for bushy plants and more flowers. Remove dead heads to prolong the flowering season.
