Description Sowing More Info Delivery
An intriguing, easy-to-grow annual that produces foliage with a fragrance similar to that of a basket of tropical fruits. A profusion of canary-yellow, daisylike flowers with an attractive central maroon-red ring open during the morning and early evening, and close during very strong sunlight. Ideal for adding height and fragrance to annual borders. Height: 60-80cm (24-32in).

Full sun

81cm (32in)

1 Packet (50 Madia Seeds) (TM03161)

For best results, provide a light, well-drained soil in full sun.

Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 15-21C (60-70F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 5-21 days. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays.

Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost 30-45cm (12-18in) apart or into containers spaced 15cm (6in) apart.
