How to Grow
For best results sow in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Gently press seed into surface and do not cover with soil as light is necessary for germination. Tray can be covered with glass or plastic to retain moisture.
Plant in a sunny position in rich, well-drained soil. To ensure good flowering use Thrive Granular All Purpose Fertiliser. Pinch out early buds for heavier branching. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser fortnightly for stronger plants. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
