Description

I picked a small and hugely fragrant bunch of these for Valentine’s Day this year, and having put them in quite a sheltered, well-drained spot at the top of a retaining wall, realised they have not stopped flowering all year. Plus, they have a vase life of two weeks.

Care Tips

Feed and water regularly until established. Deadhead to prolong flowering. Make sure soil is well drained and avoid winter wet which can be harmful to the plant.
