Care Tips Agastache prefers sunny free-draining soil but tolerates almost any soil and will cope with dry shade. They do not require extra feeding - this will only encourage leggy growth. The plants will be stronger and more floriferous if you cut back flower stalks as flowers fade.

I bought the seeds as it states that they are tried and tested for quality. 3 seeds out of 30 germinated and have barely grown in size. I have purchased 2 other packets of different seeds and I hope they are more successful in germinating.

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Sorry to hear of your problems with germinating these seeds. We have sent another pack for you to try."

I am not very experienced at planting seeds . I sewed my seeds quite late in the spring and put the plants in my pots thinking they would not come to much . However they have wonderful colour orange to pink and as they are dying back slightly red . They are like the fringing on denim jackets xxx
