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 Autumn, Spring, Surface
A cultivar of the familiar white or cream wild flower, with flat heads of tiny, deep-pink blooms with white eyes, held on wiry stems clothed in very fine, ferny, dark-green foliage. Attractive to bees, hoverflies and other beneficial insects.

NOTE: Externally sourced seeds.

Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow onto the surface of moist, but not waterlogged, compost in spring or autumn. (Please note that it is impossible to fully isolate the seeds, so the packet will contain some chaff.) It may be beneficial to cover with clear plastic until germination occurs, which should take 14-21 days. Prick out seedlings and grow on in a cold frame, planting out when all danger of frost is past.
