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).

Gypsophila elegans Mixed
Annual Baby's Breath
Sorry - sold out
Type/Hardiness Annual, Hardy
Flowering period June-August
Height 18in/50cm
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Not fussy
Sowing time/depth Spring, autumn, 0.15in/3mm
A favourite with flower arrangers, but loved by pollinating insects too, with masses of tiny flowers in shades of pink and white on delicate, ferny foliage. Grow en masse for best effect.

NOTE: Externally sourced seeds.

Sowing and/or growing instructions
Best sown in early spring where they are to flower, 1/8in (3mm) deep, thinning to 9-12in apart. Alternatively sow in autumn for earlier flowering, and can also be sown under glass in autumn, transplanting into individual pots for planting out later.
