How to Grow
Sow direct where they are to grow. Scatter seeds and press lightly into cultivated soil. Do not cover as seeds need light to germinate. Water with a fine mist spray.
Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Keep well watered at seedling stage but do not over-water once established. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food monthly. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
When flower buds form, switch to applying Yates Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit to improve size and colour of blooms.
