How to grow
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.
Begin applying Yates Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit Plant Food regularly when buds appear to improve blooming. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
For best results have trellis running in a north-south direction. Use seeds of all sizes as seeds of darker coloured flowers are often small and shrivelled. Pick blooms regularly to promote further flowering. At the end of the season improve soil by digging in these nitrogen-rich plants.
