Sow March to May. Sow outdoors where they are to flower once the soil has warmed. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sprinkle the seed thinly over the surface, then rake lightly to ensure seed is just covered. Alternatively, sow 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in drills, 30cm (12in) apart. Germination usually takes 14-21 days.

As seedlings germinate, thin out any that are too close together so that remaining plants are about 10cm (4in) apart. Regular removal of spent flowers will encourage further blooming.

Prefers a well drained soil in full sun.

  1. Butterfly Mixture

    By Jan Silins 02-02-2017

    Really unusual and attractive selection, only beware, slugs like these too, so advisable to start off in trays that are somewhere where slugs can't get to them and put out when established, once they get going they really do grow rapidly right up to nearly Chrismas
