One of the all-time classic scents, the perfume of these quick-to-flower and long-to-last ten week mixed stocks is not to be missed.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow in February-April, under cover in trays, ideally with a bit of bottom heat. Just cover the seed with compost, but do not exclude light, which is beneficial to germination. Germination usually takes a couple of weeks.
Care Tips Plant in clumps around your kitchen window or garden seat to make the most of their scent. Grows well in container pots.
Flowering June - September, 12-14 weeks from sowing
Vase Life Strip all the leaves below the water line. These will taint the water and quickly exude a pungent smell. Useful for small scented bedside posies.
