Flowering Season

From Mid Summer TO Mid Autumn

The 3 inch flowers are borne singly and are produced in succession from mid-summer to mid-autumn.

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Look under the individual varieties for planting guidelines

 

Propagation by cuttings

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Take heel cuttings, 3-4 inches long from half-ripe lateral shoots preferably with a heel at any time between early and late summer. Insert into equal parts of sand and peat in a propagating case at a temperature of 16C. When rooted, pot the cuttings singly in 3 inch pots of John Innes No 1 and overwinter in a cold frame. The following spring, pot on into 4 inch pots and plunge outdoors until planting out in autumn.

 

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Late Autumn

Flowers are generally funnel-shaped and are showy but short lived.
