- Grow these plants in well-drained soil in sun to partial shade. As well as the cutting garden they also work well in the middle ground amongst a range of plants in a mixed herbaceous border. Support maybe required.
Make this the year you grow your own flowers. Keep picking these annuals and they will produce flowers for you to have in vases all over the house.
This carefully planned selection of cut flower seedlings will produce 3-4 vases of flowers a week, from June until October. This is brilliant value and an easy and hugely rewarding thing to grow.
You will need at least 3.5m x 4m of space in the garden in sun. Full instructions and planting plan included.
Please note: These seedlings can be affected by the spring weather conditions and will be sent out at the optimum time for planting straight out in the garden.
