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 and/or growing instructions
Sow direct in spring or autumn, thinning to 1 foot apart, or thinly in modules for planting out later. Self seeds enthusiastically, so cut back spend flower heads swiftly if you wish to avoid this.
