Antirrhinum - Double Madam Butterfly Mixed
This is a flower in an entirely new form. Its large completely double, azalea-shaped blooms provide a riot of colour and its reliability and impressiveness are borne out by rare award of an All-America and All-Britain Selections Bronze Medal. It is ideal for borders, bedding and superb cut flowers. Height: 69-90cm.
Sow January to March. Germinate at 20-30C on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Do not cover the seed. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 10-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 23-3cm apart. Remove spent flowers regularly to encourage further blooming.
