  • Garden careSow the seeds straight into a well-prepared seed bed in early summer, planting them 2.5mm deep. Thin out as soon as they are large enough to handle, replanting the extras so there is approximately 30cm between each. Pinching out the tips as they grow will encourage bushier growth.

  • Flowering: June-September
