Hardy Perennial
Flowers: June to winter
Height: 2m, Spread: 1m
Position: Sun to light shade in well drained soil

Packet of 25 seeds 


Sowing Instructions: Sow any time of the year.  Sow onto the surface of a moist seed compost, do not cover seed or exclude light which is beneficial to germination. Propagate at 20 to 24C in a propagator, greenhouse or on a windowsill indoors sealed in a polythene bag. Germination should take place in 10 to 90 days. As soon as some of the seedlings begin to emerge, ventilate gradually, maintain a temperature of around 18C and take care not to over-water.

Growing Instructions: Grow the seedlings on, shaded lightly from direct sunlight and when large enough to handle, pot up individually into 8 or 9cm pots. When large enough, plant out into well-drained soil in a sunny or lightly shaded position.
