Large sweetly scented 'powder puff' blooms in romantic pastel shades. Quick and easy to grow for mixed borders and wonderfully fragrant cut flower bouquets.
Wonderful grouped together in borders, looks beautiful planted in drifts, and will grow well in a container.
Keep the soil evenly moist, but do not over water.
Water the plants carefully to avoid getting the foliage wet; excess moisture on the leaves can cause disease.
Sweet Sultan can grow well in cold climates, as well as tolerating heat and drought.

April-May in flowering position.

Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days.
Thin seedlings to 25 cm apart. Water well until plants are established and keep weed free.
March-May 5 mm deep in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position.
A temperature of +10-+15C is ideal. Keep moist.
Transplant seedlings, 25 cm apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem.
Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, 25cm apart, when frosts are over.
