Planting Advice

Sow in flowering position. Thin as necessary. Deadhead to prolong flowering season. For even results in cooler conditions, sow 0.5cm deep in pots or trays of seed compost. Maintain gentle warmth - 16C (61F) and keep moist. Thin (prick out) to other trays when seedlings are large enough to handle. Harden off before planting out in late spring spacing 45cm apart.
