How

Sow direct where they are to grow in well drained, damp soil. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix and firm down. Do not water for a couple of days after sowing. Best results are achieved when soil temperature is consistently above 20 degrees Celsius. Make successive sowings every few weeks.

Care

Select a sunny, well-drained position. Enrich soil before sowing with Yates Dynamic lifter. Feed plants regularly with Yates Thrive Flower & Fruit Soluble Fertiliser. Protect from snails and slugs.

Hint

Remove spent flowers regularly or leave to mature and self seed. This mix contains selected varieties of bee attracting flowers including Phacelia, Borage, Poppies, Zinnia and Calendula. Results will vary depending on climate and time of year. Not for use where livestock graze.
