How

Sow direct where they are to grow. Scatter seed thinly and rake lightly into soil surface. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period.

Care

Choose any site in sun or semi-shade, from window boxes to pavement cracks Choose a sunny or semi-shaded position with well drained soil. 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

Sow seeds sparingly as roots are easily damaged and plants resent thinning out or transplanting. Virginian Stock is often sown over bulbs to disguise untidy bulb leaves after flowering.
