    When to sow
    Sow March to May or September to October and sow outdoors directly onto soil where they are to flower once the soil has warmed.
    For best results choose a poor, infertile soil in full sun and do not add fertiliser.

    Sowing guidelines
    Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine texture. Sprinkle seed thinly over the surface and rake lightly to ensure the seed is covered. Germination takes 14 - 21 days.
    As seedlings germinate, keep well watered and weed free. Flowers spring to autumn.
    In the autumn after the seed has been shed, clean up the growing area and water well. Perennials and biennialplants will continue to grow and flower the following year. Autumn sown seed will flower the following summer.
