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 direct where to grow in a well prepared seedbed. Sow seeds 2cm apart in rows 30cm apart and to a depth of 1cm.
  • Seedling Care: Keeps seedbed or trays evenly moist during the germination period of 7-14 days. Apply McGregor's FruitMax 2 weeks after germination for healthier plants and a maximum crop. Protect your flower garden from snails and slugs with McGregor's Snail and Slug bait and from White Butterfly with McGregor's Derris Dust.
  • Hints and Tips: From sowing to flowering in 14 weeks. Remove faded blooms for best display.
