There is no better flower for the children's garden, as these dainty plants flower just four or five weeks after sowing.
Ideal for edging or filling in gaps in borders, successional sowings through spring and summer give continuous colour.

How to Guide
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.
Potting on/Thining Out
When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to allow their development and to prevent overcrowding.
