I absolutely love the warm, soft colours in this mix which flowers in a sheltered spot from late winter all the way through spring.
It's one of my favourite spring container plants and I love it to pick for a vase and to decorate puddings.
Pick the flowers and scatter them onto salads.
In pots give a balanced liquid feed every 2-3 weeks. Deadhead or pick regularly to prolong flowering and maintain a compact shape. If plants become leggy, a mid-season chop in July to 5cm (2in) above ground-level will help promote bushy re-growth.
