How to grow


Full sun


Sow direct either in rows or scattered in clumps around the garden. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down and keep moist.


Choose a well drained position in full sun. Add Yates Blood & Bone and Yates Hydrangea Pinking Liquid Lime & Dolomite before planting, and fertilise regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.


Make successive sowings at 4 weekly intervals to ensure continuous supply of flowers for picking. Plants may require support in exposed positions.
