How

Sow direct where they are to grow or in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Press lightly into surface and keep moist.

Care

For best colour and prolonged flowering, choose a lightly shaded, moist position. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting and feed regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food. Water well during warm dry weather. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Water regularly at base of plant to avoid fungal diseases. Remove central flower spike when blooms fade to encourage smaller side shoots to develop. Once established these plants will self seed for many years.

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