How

Sow direct where they are to grow.  Scatter seed thinly and rake into surface lightly. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period. It is difficult to transplant these plants successfully.

Care

Choose a sunny, well-drained position. These plants will tolerate sandy or poor soil and do not like over-moist conditions. Water regularly until flowering time and feed with Yates Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit just prior to blooms opening.  Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Keep weeds down and avoid disturbing soil around the roots. Remove spent flowers to encourage more blooms

Storage

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