You can look forward to an extra long lasting display from this fully double snapdragon, because the flowers are so tightly ruffled that insects struggle to pollinate them. This superb variety has a basal branching habit that produces compact, bushy plants. An outstanding garden performer, Antirrhinum nanum 'Twinny Appleblossom' is perfect for filling your borders, beds and containers with pretty pastel shades throughout summer. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 25cm (10").
Culinary note: These pretty flowers can be used as garnishes or dressings but can have a bland or sometimes bitter taste. For more details about edible flowers click here.
Sow Antirrhinum seeds indoors or under glass from January to March on the surface of a good quality seed compost and gently firm down. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) or seal inside a clear polythene bag until germination which takes 10 - 21 days. Keep the compost damp but not wet and do not exclude light.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow Snapdragon plants on in cooler conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting outdoors. Plant Snapdragons at a distance of 30cm (12") apart on any light, well drained soil in full sun.
