These florists' varieties of snapdragons are brilliant for their tall flower spikes, and will last well over a week in the vase.

Grow them in the border, or in pots. Keep picking and they keep flowering, making excellent, long performing garden plants as well as cut flowers.

This collection includes 5 or 10 seedlings each of:

Common Name Snapdragon
Border Position Cutting Garden
Soil Type Neutral - Alkaline
Scent Unscented
Site Full Sun
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 60cm (24in)
Spacing 30cm (12in) apart, 15 seedlings fills 3.5m² (ie 3.5m x 1m border or patch)
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Half-hardy annuals will require protection until after the last frosts when they can be planted outside. Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for 7-10 days before moving to their final position. Choose a spot in full sun or light shade, ideally with moist but well-drained soil. Prepare the final planting area well by adding plenty of organic matter (such as Orgro or home-made compost) and forking it through your topsoil. You want soil with a fine tilth (or texture). Water plants well or soak for 20 minutes in a bucket or wheelbarrow of water if they look dry. Mark out your planting positions with empty plant pots, leaving plenty of space for plants to spread. Dig holes deep and wide enough so that the roots are covered and the crown (or base) of the plant is level with the soil surface. Backfill around each plant and firm the soil gently. You should be able to tug gently on the leaves without the plant lifting out of the ground. Water them in well and water again, with a flood, not a sprinkle, every 5-7 days (if no rain), to encourage roots to be drawn down deep. 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.
Care Tips They will need staking, or growing up through horizontally stretched jute netting. Keep picking (not to the ground but to above a pair of leaves), and these will keep flowering for months at a time.
Flowering July - October
Vase Life They should last 7-10 days in the vase.

Plants arrived promptly or around the advertised date. Most of the plants performed really well and have produced an abundance of cut flowers over the summer months, in spite of the extremely dry conditions.
The antirrhinums, in particular, a revelation. Bunches and bunches of beautiful flowers in lovely jewel colours.
The bees love them.

The plants have done well especially the zinnias and the cosmos. I had a bit of difficulty with the ipomoea in the hot weather but it is flourishing now.

They had to be planted in unhelpful garden conditions and the weather was not really favourable but the plants gave a brave show, although were not able to grow strongly
