Hesperis Matronalis Mix
This fabulous mix of pink and white forms will produce flowers varying in colour from deep rich purple, through all the paler lilac shades to white. If you leave them to seed themselves they will maintain this diversity indefinitely, gradually naturalising over a large area. The fragrance is as sweet as a violet's, and most pronounced in the evening (the night-scented stock is a close relative). A perfect cottage garden plant, it is very attractive to wildlife being host to the caterpillars of several butterfly species, including the Orange tip and Small White butterfly. A gorgeous, hardy, long-lived cottage garden favourite.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
