Large fully double flower heads in a mixture of gold, yellow and orange. Good economy mix for mass bedding. Height 60-75cm. Adds height and interest to borders and will flower all summer.
WHEN TO SOW
February to April
WHERE TO SOW
Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or in a warm place and keep at a temperature of between 21-25°C (70-75°F). After sowing do not exclude light as this helps germination which usually takes 7-21 days.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12") apart in well drained soil in full sun.
Regular removal of dead flower heads will promote new growth and prolong the flowering season.
