  • Sow in a sunny, well-drained position. Sprinkle seeds over soil, cover lightly, firm down gently and keep damp. Or sow in seed boxes, transplanting when large enough to handle. Thin as necessary, spacing 30cm (1’) apart. Pinch out the early buds to encourage good, strong clumps. Remove spent flower heads to encourage further blooms.

    Seedlings emerge 10-14 days
