Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Treat as an annual bedding plant in borders or plant them in masses where they make a striking display. They also grow well in pots and window boxes. Plant in a position in full sun in spring, two or three weeks after the last expected frost. Space them 30cm apart in cool climates and 50cm apart in warm regions. When the young plants are 15cm tall, pinch out the tips of the main stems to encourage branching and bushiness.
