Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover February - April. We recommend that the seeds are only lightly covered as they do need light to germinate. You may also find that a period of hot- cold helps with the germination of these seeds. They can be slow to germinate, and can take up to 80 days. Plant out once roots have filled a small pot.
Care Tips Cut back stems once they've turned brown to encourage re-flowering. This is a clump forming plant.
Flowering June - August, 20 weeks from spring sowing
Vase Life 7 days, sear stem ends in boiling water for 20 secs.
