Sowing time/depth Spring or Autumn,
A popular cottage garden plant, with tall spikes of golden-yellow flowers from mid- to late-summer, contrasting with light-green foliage. It has a spreading habit and does need to be kept in check, but is nevertheless a useful plant for late summer colour.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow in spring or autumn under glass at 15-20C, in well-drained seed compost, covering with a little sieved compost of fine vermiculite. Germination can be erratic, taking 1-3 months. If germination does not occur, seal in a plastic bag and refrigerate for 14-28 days, then return to warmth. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle and grow on. Plant out after all danger of frost has passed, in moist but well drained soil in sun or part shade.
