A relatively rare climbing plant with the most exquisite, nodding, bell-shaped flowers in palest ice blue. The 3cm blooms are veined darker blue on the inside with sumptuous purple and maroon centres. Prefers a well-drained sunny or semi-shaded spot, and if planted among shrubs, will happily scramble through them. Once established, best left undisturbed.

Packet of 30 seeds



Sowing Instructions:  Sow at any time of year, except early to mid-summer. Sow on the surface of moist, free-draining seed compost (eg. John Innes). Do not cover the seed as light in beneficial to germination. Keep the compost moist but not over wet. Seal in a polythene bag or place in a propagator and maintain at 18-20C. Germination should take place in 7 to 42 days.

Growing Instructions:  When the seedlings are large enough to handle, pot up individually into small pots (7-9cm) and grow on in well-ventilated conditions at about 13 to 15C. Overwinter the seedlings if necessary in a frost free place. When established, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out in a sunny or semi-shaded position.
