Description

This is a deliciously fragrant, richly coloured wallflower collection in deep wine, toffee apple orange caramel and ruby burgundy . These plants grow a good size ( approx 40 cm) and will benefit from being supported in some form .  A tip is to spread a small piece of  wide plastic netting supported on poles ,over them while small and allow them to grow through this.

The seed packet contains a mix of the following :

Wallflower ‘Fire King’

Wallflower ‘Blood Red Covent Garden’

Wallflower ‘Ruby Gem’

 

Sowing advice

Sow the seeds in spring and autumn on good quality seed raising mix in pots or trays, or they can also be sown direct where they are to grow. Cover the seeds lightly with mix, and keep moist but not wet.  Ideal temperature is 20 deg C. Seeds should germinate in about 7-10 days . Transplant to  8cm pots when large enough to handle, and plant out after all danger of frost has gone.
