A very easy to grow annual, known as the Kingfisher Daisy because of its daisy like flowers. Plants form a mat of bright green foliage and from the beginning of summer to first frosts, they will continually be covered in flowers of electric blue with a typical yellow daisy-like centre. Good value for money, use to edge borders and beds, or simply in containers and window boxes. Flowers summer to autumn. Height 15cm (6in).
Sow 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in good seed sowing compost from late winter to late spring. Germination takes 7-14 days at 18-20C (65-70F).
When large enough to handle transplant the seedlings to boxes or 7.5cm (3in) pots, and grow on at 13-16C (55-60F). When well grown gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out in late spring after all risk of frost has passed 15cm (6in) apart in full sun and well drained soil. For growing in containers, allow each plant 10-15cm (4-6in) of space, water regularly but don't overfeed.
