How to grow


Full sun


Scatter seeds direct where they are to grow or into trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period. Transplant or thin out when large enough to handle.


Choose a sunny, very well-drained position. These plants will tolerate sandy or poor soil and do not like over-moist conditions. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.


This is an ideal dried flower variety. Cut flowers just before fully opened and tie in bunches. Hang with heads down in cool, well-aired indoor position until fully dried. Fun for kids!
