Sow annual seed from March to May following the instructions on each seed packet.


When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7cm (3") pots and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Annual plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun in any moist, well drained soil at a distance of 45cm (18") apart.

Water regularly until annual plants become fully established. Place twiggy sticks among the seedlings while they are 10cm (4") high and allow the plants to grow through them for support. Remove spent flowers regularly to encourage further blooming.
