  • Growing instructions: Sow seed from April to June in a well-prepared seedbed, outside where they are to flower. Firstly, shake the box well and then carefully tear open the tab at the side before gently and evenly shaking out the seed mix onto the surface of the soil. Lightly rake over the seedbed to cover the seeds before watering well with a fine spray. Thin out if plants become overcrowded. For a continuous display, make several sowings at two to three week intervals.
