How

Sow direct where they are to grow. Cover lightly with Yates Seed Raising Mix. Keep moist through germination period.

Care

Choose a sunny or lightly shaded, well-drained position. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting and fertilise regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem. If grown as a lawn substitute, occassional mowing at a high setting will encourage plants to spread sideways.

Hint

Infuse flower heads in hot water to make a tea that can be used to relieve morning sickness, colic, stress and pain

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