Take special care as this seed is very fine. Spread thinly and press lightly (as seeds need light to germinate) into trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Water with a fine mist spray. Keep trays in a warm place and retain moisture by covering with glass or plastic cling wrap. Transplant when large enough to handle.
Choose a semi shaded position in well drained soil. Plants grown in shady conditions display the most intense colours. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Water moderately and feed with Yates Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit Plant Food regularly. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
If growing for potted colour, transplant into a 15-20cm pot filled with a premium potting mix.
