This is a great performer for borders, wild gardens and cutting. The nectar-rich flowers are a magnet to bees and butterflies.
Sow indoors for surest results, 0.5cm deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse or on a cool windowsill. Seedlings appear in 14-42 days. Transplant seedlings 5cm apart to further trays when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions before planting out 40cm apart. Sow outdoors in a seed bed, 0.5cm deep into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm apart before planting out to flowering positions in spring or autumn, spacing 40cm apart.
This is native grown seed, not taken from the wild.
