About the product

A summer bedding and container favourite, providing masses of flowers throughout the summer, in an excellent range of colors.
Usually grown as an annual.
F2 hybrid.
Succeeds in any reasonably good soil. Grows well in heavy clay soils. Prefers a moist well-drained humus rich soil in a cool site.
Succeeds in sun or semi-shade. Plants are not frost hardy, but can be grown outdoors in Britain by sowing the seed in a greenhouse and planting out after the last expected frosts.
This plant has seed capsules that spring open forcibly as the seed ripens to eject the seed a considerable distance. The capsules are sensitive to touch even before the seed is ripe, making seed collection difficult but fun.
Flowers June to October, the same year. Remove dead heads to prolong flowering. Do not allow young plants to dry out.
Approximately 100 seeds in 0.1g packet.
