Quick and easy to grow, ideal for filling a border. Flowering within 6-7 weeks of emergence. Great for pollinating insects to feed on throughout the summer.
How to sow
Sow outdoors where they are to flower, once the soil has warmed. Rake the ground to a fine tilth before sowing. Either sprinkle the seed thinly over the surface, then rake lightly ensuring the seed is just covered, or sow 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in drills, 30cm (12in) apart. Germination usually takes 14-21 days.
How to grow
As seedlings germinate, carefully thin out any that are too close together and replant elsewhere. Remove spent flowers regularly to encourage more blooms.
