Description Sowing More Info Delivery

This pretty hardy annual has a lovely informality that makes it perfect for weaving into cottage garden borders, or dotting through rockeries. Forming a loose clump of slender foliage, Linum grandiflorum 'Salmon Bright Eyes' will flower all summer, producing an elegant display of salmon pink blooms, each with a deep orange eye. Effortlessly beautiful, this hardy annual Flax is at its best when planted among other annuals and perennials to create an eclectic, unrestrained feel. Pollinating insects will also appreciate it, for its nectar-rich blooms. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 40cm (16").


1 packet (350 seeds) (KB4568)

Direct sow Linum seeds outdoors where they are to grow from April to May. Choose a position in full sun on well-drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow seeds thinly, at a depth of 1cm (&frac;1/2”) and cover seed with its own depth of soil to exclude light. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 14-21 days. When Linum seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 30cm (12”) apart.

Alternatively, sow indoors from March to April at a temperature of 20-25C (70-75F). When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. Grow Linum in full sun on any well drained soil.

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Once established, Linum will need little aftercare.
