PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Sowing time/depth ,
Although this pretty plant has both purple and pink varieties, and seeds are available on this website as a mix collected from both colours of plant, I am offering here seed collected only from pink plants. I cannot guarantee that all will come true, but it is likely that more pink plants will result than from the mixed packs. Linaria is much loved by butterflies and bees. It flowers from June right through to the first frosts and fresh flower spikes are lovely in flower arrangements.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow direct in Autumn or Spring, thinning as required. Self-seeds enthusiastically, but shallow-rooted, so it is not difficult to remove unwanted plants. N.B. It is impractical to remove all chaff, so a little is present. Just sow the contents of the pack as normal.
