I used to have reservations about double flowers, but not with these ruffled calibrachoas (sterile), which bloom continually, right through the growing season. Contrast them with the upward spires of coral diascia and airy spikes of talinum and you’ve got a tabletop version of Vita Sackville West’s signature combination; plants like a mosque - rounded domes punctuated by minarets.

This collection contains:
Genus Calibrachoa, Diascia, Talinum
Variety Aurora Dark Pink, Double Can Can Apricot, Double Can Can Provence Blue
Type Tender Perennial (Grown as a Half-Hardy Annual)
Border Position Container, Front, Ground Cover
Soil Type Fertile, Neutral
Site Full Sun, Part Shade
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 15-50cm (6-20in), trailing to 30cm (12in)
Spacing 45cm (18in)
Sowing, Seeds, Planting 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, putting taller ones in the centre and trailing ones at the edges. Backfill with compost ensuring the roots are well covered and water well to settle the soil.
Care Tips Keep well watered, especially during dry weather and apply a liquid feed once a month. Pinching back the growing tips will encourage a compact, bushy habit. Grow as an annual display or overwinter in a frost-free greenhouse.
