A charming old heirloom favourite with double and semi-double flowers carried above bushy, green foliage. This mixture contains the full colour range and once flowers start, the plants will bloom all summer. Plants enjoy moist soils and grow to 60 cm (2') in height. Flowers are pollinated by bees and other insects. Mature flower capsules will harmlessly 'explode' when handled.

How To Grow
125 seeds/gram. Heirloom. Sow outdoors where they are to bloom after the danger of frost has passed. For an earlier start, sow seed 4-6 weeks early indoors. Light is required for germination so do not cover seed with the soil-less mix. Seed germinates in 7-14 days at 21 C (70 F). After that, grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny site in the garden. Space plants 30 cm (12") apart in the garden. In areas with very hot summers, a couple of hours of shade in the afternoon is beneficial
