How To Grow
Sow in warm areas anytime. In frost prone areas when danger of frost is over. Fill pot or seed tray with moist sandy soil, wet thoroughly and compress. Sow seeds on the surface and cover lightly to twice the thickness of the seeds. It is beneficial to add Wildflower Seed Starter Granules to soil surface. Keep moist. Place in a warm shady position to germinate fully. Transplant to individual containers when large enough to handle. Plant out to permanent position when about 20cm (8in) high. Water in well and water regularly during first summer. Use a light application of organic or slow release fertilizer. Prune after flowering to improve shape or height.
