Description

Our Easy Grow range of flower, fruit and vegetable seeds have been specially selected for superb performance with minimum fuss! Perfect for beginner growers and experienced gardeners alike, these reliable varieties are easy to germinate and grow to maturity, delivering colourful blooms and bountiful crops with every packet you sow.


It's easy to see why Limnanthes douglasii is better known as the poached egg plant. The yolk-yellow centres contrast brightly with the outer edges of dazzling white. This easy to grow annual is neat and compact making a lovely edging for sunny borders and pathways. Why not try growing it in the vegetable plot, where it will attract hoverflies to reduce aphid populations. Bees also love this low, spreading carpet of blooms. Perfect for almost any sunny spot in the garden! Height: 15cm (6”). Spread: 20cm (8”).

Sowing

Sow outdoors from February to May or indoors from August to September for flowering the following spring. Direct sow outdoors where they are to flower. Choose a position in full sun on moist, well drained soil. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sow 3mm (1/8") deep, in rows 30cm (12") apart. For spring/summer flowering pot plants, sow in a cool greenhouse or conservatory in late summer or early autumn. Grow on cool in full light and water sparingly. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 15cm (6") apart.

More Info
Feed and water Limanthes regularly throughout summer.
