Product details

How

Sow direct where they are to grow or, in cooler months, raise in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix under glass. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period. Thin out or transplant when large enough to handle.

Care

Choose a sunny, well-drained position with light sandy soil. Add Yates Blood & Bone and Yates Garden Lime before planting. Water only when dry and apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food regularly. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

This is an ideal dried flower variety that holds its colour well. Pick flowers when fully opened and tie in bunches. Hang with heads down in cool, well-aired indoor position until fully dried.

Storage

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