€3.20 “Price excl. VAT: €2.82”
Plant Class: Half Hardy Annual (HHA)
Useful Information: Full sun; Suitable for containers; Fragrant variety
Sow and Grow: Sow indoors for surest results, February-April, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20 degree C (60-68 degree F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Transplant them, 5 cm (2-inch) apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-June, 25 cm (10-inch) apart, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors for ease, April-May, where they are to flower, 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings as required. Water well until plants are established. Flowers: June to October.
Hints and Tips: Remove dead heads to prolong the flowering season. Targets will help attract beneficial insects into the garden.
