An old favourite of home gardeners all over. Provides tall airy foliage and loads of cut flowers in white, pink and purple shades as well as bi-colour blooms. Very easy to grow and actually prefers sandy soils. Plant outside 6 mm deep in May and get flowers 8 weeks later right up until the first frost. Great plant for a child's garden.
Direct sow 2 mm deep when temperature below is present. Germination 7 to 21 days. Maybe slow to germinate but will catch up quickly. Best grown in a full sun location. Can be transplanted from an indoor sowing but needs bright light to be successful.
