How to grow

Position

Full Sun

How

Choose a sunny, well-drained sheltered position. Work in lime and Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Sow into damp soil beside trellis or support (up to 2m) direct where they are to grow. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix and firm down. Do not water for a couple of days after sowing.

Care

Support small seedlings with twigs until they can reach trellis. Begin applying Yates Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit Plant Food regularly when buds appear to improve blooming. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

For best results have trellis running in a north-south direction. Pick blooms regularly to promote further flowering. At the end of the season improve soil by digging in these nitrogen-rich plants.
