Pot up bedding plants and grow them on in frost-free conditions. When plants are well grown, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days and transplant them into their final positions in containers, beds and borders. Grow bedding plants in fertile, well drained soil in full sun.
Feed and water frequently throughout the summer to promote an endless supply of flowers. Deadhead faded flowers to prolong the flowering period.
