Sowing, Seeds, Planting Half-hardy annuals will require protection until after the last frosts. Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for 7-10 days before moving to their final position. For growing in pots, use as large a container as possible, as this won't dry out so quickly and will require less watering. As a general guide we recommend 9-10 plants to a 40cm (16in) diameter container. Put plenty of crocks in the bottom for drainage and part-fill with a good quality, multi-purpose peat-free compost. Position your plants and backfill with compost ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Water well to settle the soil.
Care Tips Flowering will stop in dry weather unless it is kept well watered. Pinch out growing tips to promote bushy growth. Cut back flowering shoots when initial flowering is finished to encourage another flush of flowers. Cut back to a around 10-15cm (4-6in) after flowering has finished and overwinter in frost-free conditions if growing as a perennial.
