Coreopsis x hybrida 'Incredible Dwarf Mix' is the result of years of breeding work. Delicate flowers in an astonishing range of colours seem to float above airy clumps of foliage. This vibrant dwarf tickseed has a neat, bushy habit that is perfectly suited to growing in drifts throughout borders or for edging beds with long lasting colour. An easy to grow annual that makes a lovely cut flower too. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 45cm (18").
Sow coreopsis from February to March on the surface of a good seed compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 21-30 days.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Coreopsis 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 well drained soil at a distance of 30cm (12") apart.
