Short of time? Candytuft 'Dwarf Fairyland Mixed' is the ideal last minute border filler. These showy plants will delight with their many scented flowers in a wide range of colours throughout the summer months. Cut and use the dried seed heads in floral decorations. Height: 23cm (9"). Spread: 23cm (9").
Sow outdoors where they are to flower. Before sowing, prepare the ground well by raking until the soil is fine and crumbly and remove any large stones. Sow 6mm (1/4") deep, in rows 30cm (12") apart, or scatter seed in beds or borders as a gap filler and lightly cover over. Thin out the seedlings when they are large enough to handle, to about 30cm (12") apart.
Water regularly until candytuft plants are fully established. Cut back the plants to remove faded candytuft flowers and maintain a neat, compact habit.
