Winner of the Award of Garden Merit.
Flowers: Early summer
Height: If left, can grow up to 30m but can be controlled by pruning after flowering
Packet of 8 seeds.
Caution! Seeds harmful if eaten
Pre-sowing Treatment: Soak in warm water for 12 hours or until the seeds start to swell.
Sowing Instructions: Can be sown at any time of year. Sow 10mm deep in moist (not wet), free-draining seed compost in 9cm pots and cover with sieved compost or vermiculite. Seal in a polythene bag and propagate at 18-21C in good light but out of direct sunlight. Germination usually takes up to 21 days.
Growing Instructions: When seedlings have emerged, remove from polythene bags and grow on in cooler conditions – about 16-18C. Provide support as necessary and re-pot into 1 litre pots before planting out when large enough as conditions allow - generally late spring is best. Prune back to desired shape after flowering each year.
