There are some moments as a gardener when you suddenly see a collection of flowers and colours that you know were made to be together. This is just one of those. This lot were planted together last year in our Dutch Yard and we all adored their very long-lasting soft caramel colours, shapes and forms.This collection contains 1 packet each of:
- Rudbeckia hirta 'Sahara'
- Zinnia elegans 'Queeny Lime Orange'
- Cosmos bipinnatus 'Xanthos'
- Tagetes patula 'Linnaeus Burning Embers'
- Amaranthus cruentus 'Hot Biscuits'
- Ipomoea lobata (Spanish Flag)
Sow seed indoors in spring with some warmth. Plant should be kept in a frost free place until they can be hardened off and planted outside when all danger of frost has passed. NB zinnias hate disturbance and cold nights so do not sow too early.
