Tithonia ‘Goldfinger’ adds a glow of colour to the garden in summer with its warm orange dahlia-like flowers on tall stems. It looks sensational combined with other ‘hot’ colours and makes a great cut flower. Regular deadheading will keep it blooming through summer, attracting pollinators.

Sow indoors

February-May: Fill a small 6cm (2½ in) pot with seed compost, shake and level firm with the base of another pot. Water well with a fine rose. Sow seeds individually into compost, pushing seeds to 1cm (½ in) deep. Place in a propagator at 15-20°C (60-70°F) or cover pot with cling film and leave in a warm room. After germination, keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from direct sunlight. When large enough to handle, transplant 5cm (2in) apart into trays of potting compost.

Plant out

May-June: Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out when danger of frost has passed. Allow 45cm (18in) between plants

Tips

Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage more blooms.
