It's not possible to guarantee that these seeds will come true, but they were gathered from such a pretty pink plant that I decided to save them separately from the other plants in the garden. If they fail to produce pink flowers, they will reward you with a lovely selection of single, double and ruffled plants in shades of white, pale blue and purple.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow shallowly Feb-June or Sept-Oct in pots or modules in a propagator or sealed plastic bag at a temperature of around 15-20C/59-70F. Do not exclude light; this is necessary to aid germination, which can take from 1-3 months. Plant out spring-sown seedlings when large enough to handle easily, trying not to disturb the root ball. If you wish to identify the colour of the plants before planting out, grown on in pots until the first flowers appear It is a good idea to overwinter autumn-sown plants in a coldframe before planting out in spring.
