Product details

How

Sow into trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Cover well as seed needs to be in darkness to germinate. Firm down, water gently and keep moist but not wet. Transplant when large enough to handle.

Care

Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Keep well watered and apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food for stronger plants. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Remove spent blooms to prolong flowering. Flowers are edible and can be used to add colour to salads. Kids love picking pansies for posies.

Storage

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