These colourful summer flowering plants make excellent bedding and container displays, whilst the taller types make superb cut flowers.
GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: Sow thinly, indoors, January-March, in trays of seed compost. Just cover the seeds, keep moist and maintain a temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F). Germination should take 10-14 days, but may be erratic. Thin (prick out) when seedlings have developed 2-4 leaves. Harden off and plant out in May, allowing 20-25cm (8-10”) between plants. Flowers: June onwards. Remove dead heads to prolong the flowering season.
