Schizanthus - Angels Wings Mixed

This variety, also known as 'Poor Man's Orchid', features exotic blooms in a fine colour mix. This is an attractive border plant, good cut flower and easily raised conservatory plant. This half hardy annual reaches the height of 50cm.

Sow indoors from February to April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow, 0.5cm deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant them, 5cm apart, to other trays, when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, from May to June, 20cm apart, when frosts are over. For use as indoor plants, pot on seedlings individually, first to 12cm pots and then to 15cm pots. Keep in a light, airy location and feed occasionally when in bloom. Flowers from June to September.
