A mixture like this is perfect for those who struggle to pick blooms that complement each other - with these, the work's already done for you! These large double blooms are certainly worth it too.

Growing at a glance…

Sow from late winter (feb-apr) indoors or heated undercover in fine compost. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Germination will take around 7-10 days. When large enough to handle (when they're around 5-10cm), transplant to trays or individually into pots and grow on somewhere cooler Acclimatise them gradually to the outdoors, thinning them to about 15-20cm apart. Deadhead spent flowers regularly to prolong their display. Loves the sun, so plant them somewhere that catches plenty of rays.
