How

Scatter seed thinly where they are to grow, or raise in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Barely cover, firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period. Thin out or transplant when large enough to handle.

Care

Choose a well drained position in full sun or semi-shade. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting, and fertilise regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food.  Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Cut back regularly to tidy plants and encourage new growth, or leave spent flowers to self seed. Alyssum attracts beneficial insects to the garden.

Storage

Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
