Description Sowing Delivery Reviews

A true breakthrough! First year flowering from July to September from an early (February) sowing, producing heavily scented pinks. Dwarf, bushy, spreading plants; ideal for cottage or perennial borders. Easy to maintain - simply trim spent blooms with shears at the end of the season.


Culinary note: Use the clove like tasting petals for adding to cakes, either for flavour or decorating, suitable for soups, salads and sauces too. For more details about edible flowers click here.


1 Packet (50 Seeds) (26479)

Sow February to April. Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Keep at a temperature of between 18-20ºC (64-68ºF). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 14-30 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.
