Product details

How

Sow into trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period. Transplant when large enough to handle into small individual pots. When seedlings are well developed plant out into the garden or larger pot.

Care

Choose a very well-drained, sunny site (these plants do not like over-moist conditions). Add Yates Blood & Bone and Yates Garden Lime before planting. Water occasionally during summer and apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food to promote growth. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Cut back after flushes of flowering to retain shape and promote young healthy growth.

Storage

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