Wow! Dwarf compact early flowering plants are smothered in stunning golden-yellow blooms. Intriguingly marked with delicate vibrant orange spots. This versatile variety for borders or containers will burst into colour when grown in sun or shade. Height: 15-23cm (6-9in).

Sow March to May. Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Do not cover the seed. Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature of between 18-20C (64-68F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 14 to 30 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise young plants to outdoor conditions for 10 to 15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 75cm (30 inches) apart.

For best results, provide a moist well-drained soil in partial shade.
