This fast-growing annual provides flowers that are useful as a foil to larger blooms both in the garden and as a cut flower, with glaucous light green leaves and open airy clusters of small white, sometimes veined, flowers with rounded petals, on wire-thin branches. These are unbeatable for cutting and adding to arrangements and are also very pretty for growing in amongst other flowers.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
