Flowering

From Mid Spring TO Mid Summer

Normally flowers appear from mid to late Spring through to early to mid Summer

 

Planting

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

After all risk of frost plant in full or part sun position with fertile, well drained soil. If drainage is poor, such as in most clay soils, break down the clay with gypsum or build up the bed to provide good drainage.

 

Propagating by seed

From Late Winter TO Mid Spring

Sow seed under glass or indoors in good quality seed compost.
