Planting Instruction
  • How To Sow: Choose a well drained site in full sun/part shade. Sow these seeds in trays for subsequent transplanting or, after frosts, sow directly in a well prepared seedbed. Sow seeds 2 cm apart, in rows 30 cm apart and to a depth of 1 cm. Seedling Care: Keep seedbed or trays evenly moist during the germination period of 7-14 days. Apply fruit fertiliser two weeks after germination for healthier plants and maximum blooms. Protect your seedlings from slugs, snails and insect pests; go to mcgregors.co.nz for appropriate plant health and pest control products. Hints and Tips: From sowing to flowering in 14 weeks. Remove faded blooms for best display. Our seeds are not treated with Neonicotinoids.
