Description Sowing More Info Delivery
I'm a fun plant to grow as I have spotted fruits with a long neck that make me look like an elegant swan. When my fruits are dried you can paint me with faces or leave me looking like a swan. Height: 2m. Why Not invite your friends round to see who can paint the most beautiful or funniest animal or bird?

These seeds are endorsed by the RHS.

Pick the fruits from August onwards. Before painting, dry the fruits in a warm, airy position until they become lighter in weight.

Caution: not edible.
Sow me from April to May indoors. Sow me in 7.5cm pots of moist compost. Make a hole 1cm deep and push in the seed on its edge and cover with compost.Put the whole pot inside a polythene bag and put it into a propagator or warm place at 20-25C. Keep the surface of the compost moist, but not too wet. I will start to grow in about 5-7 days.

When I have got two leaves plant me into 13cm pots and grow me in a bright position. After the frosts have gone, plant me outside in a sunny position 60cm apart.

Best grown on the ground - if allowed to climb necks will straighten when dangling from a support.
