A bright mix of coloured blooms, such as pink, white and red, these delightful flowers produce large single heads. Best growing results will come in a full sun environment. These flowers are perfect for pollination and are suitable for attracting bees and butterflies. Often planted outside in April or May, you can expect blooms to form between the beginning of summer and beginning of autumn.
Approx. 120 seeds
Sow indoors for surest results, February-April, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Transplant seedlings, 5cm (2") apart, to other trays when large enough to handle (always hold by a leaf, never by the stem). Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-June, 30cm (1') apart, when frosts are over.
Sow outdoors for ease, April-May, where they are to flower, 1.5cm (½”) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 30cm (1') apart. Water well until plants are established. Flowers: June-October.
