Overview

May Gibbs

May Gibbs

Beloved children’s author and artist May Gibbs created the charming Sweet Pea Fairy, and now funds raised from the sale of this packet go to May’s favourite children’s charities – the Northcott Society for Crippled Children and The Spastic Centre. Dwarf, ground-covering plants produce bicoloured pink blooms in late spring and early summer.

Sow

Choose a sunny, well-drained sheltered position. Work in lime and Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Sow into damp soil 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

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

Pick blooms regularly to promote further flowering. At the end of the
season improve soil by digging in these nitrogen-rich plants.
