beautiful POMPONETTE seeds
Bloom Time: May to July
Sun: Full sun to part shade
Sow in pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Keep at a temperature of between 15-20°C (59-68°F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 10-21 days.
When large enough to handle, transplant the seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays to grow on. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out (after October for winter flowering). Plant 15cm (6in) apart.
Plant seeds outdoors in the open ground or in a cold frame from mid summer to early autumn in soil enriched with compost. Sow seeds on the surface of the soil and keep moist until seedlings are established. Protect seedlings with a light mulch of straw until frost danger is past.
