Canterbury Bells - Cup & Saucer Mix

As its name suggest, this variety produces cup and saucer shaped blooms for borders and cutting. It really is a cottage garden favourite for early colour. This hardy biennial reaches the height of 75cm.

Sow outdoors, from April to July, in a seed bed, 0.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings appear in 14-28 days. Thin seedlings to 5cm apart, when large enough to handle. Plant out to flowering position in autumn, allowing 30cm between plants. Or sow indoors in April, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm pots. Always hold seedlings by a leaf and never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out, September-October, 30cm apart. Flowers from May to July, the following year.
