Cultivation Advice Wallflower English Fire King

  • Sow from last frost until August at ¼ inch depth.
  • Germination temperature 20°C (68°F).
  • Germination should take place within 3 weeks.
  • If sowing in trays, prick out into small pots / trays until time to transplant or sow thinly direct into a nursery bed and thin out when large enough to handle to encourage strong plants..
  • Keep weed free and moist during hot periods. (Note Wallflowers are susceptible to Club root in acid soils)
  • In autumn plants should be moved to their final flowering position for the following spring. Space plants approx. 12 inches apart and pinch out growing tips to encourage bushy growth.
  • Plants should be removed at the end of spring once flowering has finished and replaced by annuals for succession of colour. The plant may survive to the following year if pruned back heavily, but will look unsightly at first.
