A specially blended mix includes unusual colours of smoky grey and a pale blue picotee in addition to the usual larkspur colours.
Giving excellent garden performance and also good for cutting this is one of the best mixes available.
Late summer and autumn sown seedlings may benefit from cloche or fleece protection when hard frosts threaten. Such plants generally bloom earlier the following summer than spring sown plants.

How to Guide
For earlier flowering, sturdier plants, sow in trays of moist seed compost from February to April in gentle warmth 10-15C (50-60F).
Transplant 5cm (2in) apart into other trays of compost when seedlings are large enough to handle. Gradually accustom to cooler conditions before planting out from April onwards.
Rake soil to provide a firm, even surface. Sow seeds thinly in a pre-watered soil, lightly covering them with a little more soil.
Sowings made in semi-circular lines create a natural "drift" effect. Keep moist until seedlings appear and as required in dry spells.
Sowing Distance25cm / 10in
Potting on/Thining Out
When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to allow their development and to prevent overcrowding.
