| Sowing/Flowering Info:
Sow directly between March and May where they are to flower, into shallow drills that have been pre-watered. Scratch a very fine covering of soil or compost over the seeds and tamp down. Keep moist until the seedlings germinate. Thin out seedlings to roughly 15cm apart.
Cut flowers/deadhead regularly to extend flowering period. Allow to self-seed for flowers following year. Surplus seedlings are easy to pull up where not required.
