A most gracious plant for the back of border. The stately spires are clothed with simple cup-shaped flowers in a range of soft, gentle colours. A hardy perennial, which prefers a sunny sheltered position. There is probably no other flower as closely associated to the image of the traditional cottage garden.
To Sow & Grow:
Sow indoors for surest results, 1.5cm (1/2) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse or on a warm kitchen windosill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-28 days. Transplant individually when large enough to handle to 8cm (3) pots. (Always hold seedlings by leaf never by stem .) Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions before planting out 60cm (2) apart.
Or sow outdoors in a seed bed, 0.5cm (1/4) deep, into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 8cm (3) apart before planting out to flowering position in autumn.
