I love the mix of colours here which remind me of the best of Provence — aged lime plaster, terracotta tiles, all mixed with the tones of the best summer sunset. This should make you smile.This collection contains 1 seed packet each of:
- Callistephus chinensis 'Tower Chamois'
- Phlox drummondii 'Crème Brûlée'
- Zinnia elegans 'Queeny Lime Red'
- Xerochrysum bracteatum 'Salmon Rose'
- Nasturtium 'Purple Emperor' (Tropaeolum majus)
Best grown in fertile, humus-rich, and well-drained soil, in full sun. Pinch out the tips when the plants have 3-5 pairs of leaves, to encourage branching and more flower production. Water in well and provide support. Pick regularly for the vase.
