This one is a giant in pure white, which makes a statuesque and beautiful cut flower. Our top-selling favourite. Self-sows at Perch Hill.
You can over-winter these in a cold frame, for huge, early flowers in May, or just sow in early spring for picking in summer and autumn. These varieties have also all been bred for good rust resistance.
If you have ordered these seeds, we have had unforeseen delays and they will now be available late March. We apologise for any inconvenience.
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.
