How To Grow
Sow in warm areas at any time. In colder climates wait until the danger of frost is over. Fill small pots or seed trays with a moist quality seed raising mix. Sow seeds thinly on the surface. Cover lightly and firm down gently. It is beneficial to add Mr Fothergill's Wildflower Seed Starter granules to soil surface. Water, and then keep evenly moist. Cover the pots or seed trays with clear polythene to preserve moisture and warmth. Remove when germination starts. Place in a warm shaded position to germinate fully. Transplant when plants about 10cm (4") high, spacing plants 20cm (8") apart. Grow in full sun or part shade in any well-drained soil. Water in well and then regularly until established. Seedlings emerge 3-5 weeks, longer if cool.
