How to grow


Full sun or part shade


Sow direct where they are to grow. Thinly scatter seed and cover lightly. Firm down and keep moist through germination period. Thin out when large enough to handle.


Choose a sunny or partly shaded position. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting and fertilise regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem Snail & Slug Pellets.


Remove spent blooms to prolong the flowering period and encourage new flowers. To make long-lasting dried specimens, cut seed heads before they burt open.
