Hardy annuals can withstand a touch of frost and can be sown/planted straight into the ground in the autumn and will keep through the winter without protection. In colder areas you may wish to cover seedlings or keep in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. This will self-sow in well-drained soils.
Care Tips Needs some support. Deadhead if you want to avoid self-seeding. May not flower in the first year.
Flowering July - September, 12-14 weeks from spring sowing
Vase Life 10 days. Plunge straight into water after picking as it is prone to wilting. Remove foliage from below waterline.
Harvesting Flower production: 2-3 months.

Delivery was swift but the items arrived limp and mildew looking. Tried to revive them but lost them all.

Very disappointing - had to give 1 star to complete this!
