  • Sow under cover from 4-8 weeks before the last frost through to July. Germination will take place within 2 – 6 weeks if you cover the seeds lightly with vermiculite. Ensure a temperature of 15 to 20 °C.
  • Transplant the seedlings and grow on. Gradually acclimatise them to the outdoor conditions.
  • If you sow seeds late you can over-winter them under glass or under cover.
  • Will readily re-seed itself and you can sow them directly in borders or in wild/natural grass areas.
  • Only feed if the soil is exceptionally poor.
  • The flowers should not need staking, but an overfed plant will flop.
