Brachycome - Purple Splendour
This variety is ideal for bedding, edging or patios and a charmer in window boxes and baskets. It is one of the most profuse and long-flowering annuals, with each plant often producing well over 100 blue to purple flowers.
Sow late winter to spring at 18-21C in a good seed compost just covering the seed with compost. Keep soil damp but not wet, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 14-21 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost 23cm apart in full sun in ordinary well drained soil.
