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).
|Although generally thought of as a biennial, this favourite herbal and garden flower often survives as a perennial. In its second year of growth it produces masses of bright yellow blooms, which are delicately scented, on tall, branching stems.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow on the surface of a good, preferably soil-based, compost at almost any time of year, barely covering with a little compost or fine vermiculite. Seeds will come up in their own time if kept outside, but you can hasten them on by keeping them in an unheated greenhouse. Grow on in individual pots, planting out when large enough. Can also be sown direct.|
