How to grow


Full sun


Sow direct where they are to grow. Scatter seeds and press lightly into cultivated soil. Do not cover as seeds need light to germinate. Water with a fine mist spray.


Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Keep well watered at seedling stage but do not over-water once established. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food monthly. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.


When flower buds form, switch to applying Yates Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit to improve size and colour of blooms.
