  • Garden care: Sow thinly in trays of seed compost, cover with 0.5cm of compost. Firm gently and keep moist. Cover tray with glass, polythene or propagator lid. Keep at approx. 20C. Seedlings appear 14-21 days. Remove cover when seedlings appear. When large enough transplant 5cm apart in trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to outside conditions in late May (avoid frosts). Then transplant 20cm apart in flowering position. Keep moist and weed free. Remove dead heads to prolong flowering. Cut back after flowering to encourage a second flush of blooms.
