Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
The Fried Egg or Poached Egg plant will attract hoverflies to your garden to beat the aphids. Bees also love this low, spreading carpet of fragrant golden and white blooms that will grace the front of the border, rockery or path edging.


1 packet (120 Limnanthes seeds + 25% EXTRA FREE) (24124)

Best sown where they are to flower in spring or late summer/early autumn for overwintering. Sow 3mm (1/8in) deep in rows 30cm (12in) apart in well cultivated soil which has been raked to a fine tilth.

Thin out the seedlings to 10cm (4in) apart.

They prefer full sun and a cool moist root run and because of this do very well when grown as an edging to paths. For very attractive winter/early spring flowering pot plants in a cool greenhouse or conservatory sow from mid summer to early autumn.
