Pot up Sweet William plug plants and grow them on in frost free conditions for transplanting into borders and containers later on. When all risk of frost has passed, and plugs are fully rooted into their pots, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant Sweet Williams in beds and borders in fertile, well drained soil in full sun.

Feed and water Sweet William plants regularly until they are fully established. Deadhead faded Sweet William flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced throughout the summer.

  1. Fun and long lasting

    By Erica Fisher 17-09-2013

    These have been flowering all summer and are still going strong. Trouble free plants. Really long lasting as a cut flower and really adds something special to my flower arrangements. Will grow these every year from now on.
