Growing information


  • Outdoors: Sow directly into prepared soil from April to June, after the last frost has passed.
  • Indoors (optional): Start seeds indoors in pots or trays filled with seed compost 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Harden off seedlings before transplanting outdoors after the last frost.
  • Seed depth: Sow seeds 0.5cm deep.
  • Spacing: Thin seedlings to 20cm apart.

Growing Needs:

  • Sunlight: Full sun for optimal growth and flowering.
  • Soil: Fertile, well-drained soil enriched with compost.
  • Watering: Water regularly, especially during dry periods, but avoid overwatering.
  • Feeding: Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser every few weeks during flowering.


  • Deadhead regularly: Encourage further blooms and prolong the flowering season.
  • For fresh use: Pick blossoms just as they open.
  • Drying: Harvest blooms when petals open fully and dry in a cool, airy place for potpourri or crafts.

Bonus Tips:

  • Companion planting: Interplant with herbs like dill or thyme to deter pests naturally.
  • Winter protection: Cover young seedlings with fleece or netting for late frosts.
