Product details

How

Seed is fine and delicate. Press lightly (as seeds need light to germinate) into trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix.  Firm down and water with a fine mist spray. Retain moisture by covering with glass or plastic cling wrap. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle.

Care

Choose an area that is partially shaded, at least in the early afternoon. The plants will grow well in full sun but the flower colour may not be as intense. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting and fertilise regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food. Keep well watered. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Remove spent blooms to prolong flowering.

Storage

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