Scabious - St George Mix
This hardy annual mix produces pincushion flowers, which bustle with beneficial insects. This is a cottage garden favourite for borders and cutting, reaching the height of 90cm.
Sow outdoors, from March-May, where they are to flower, 0.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Thin them to 20cm apart and water well until plants are established. For a continuous display, make sowings at two to three-week intervals. Flowers from June to October.
