Review on Earth WalkerSowing Instructions
Sow March to May or late winter/early spring, thinly, 12mm ( inch) deep in drills 30cm (12 inches) apart in well cultivated soil raked to a fine tilth. Germination usually takes around 21 days.
When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 30cm (12 inches) apart. Alternatively, you can sow indoors in late winter/early spring for earlier flowering. Sow individually into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots at 20-30C (68-86F). When well grown, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after all risk of frost.
Prefers a well drained soil in full sun. Flowers mid/late summer to autumn.
The green buds before the flower opens are delicious cooked in butter sauce and the seeds make a tasty snack. Write to us for a free leaflet with recipes for a wide range of edible flowers.
