One of the easiest and most beautiful cottage garden plants. Blooms in a unique mix of mauve, lavender, purple, rose and blue sit like jewels amongst the attractive, ferny foliage. Makes a great cut and dried flower.
Sow outdoors where they are to flower. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sow 3mm (1/8in) deep, in rows 30cm (12in) apart. Germination usually takes 14-30 days.
When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 23cm (9in) apart.
