Description

These seeds have been collected from mixed hybrids of this South African perennial, famous for their bright, wonderfully-perfumed blooms, the colours ranging from white through pink to purple. They are perfectly suited to Mediterranean climates preferring to begin their growth cycle when the rains appear and blooming for many weeks. Although they are frost-tender, they can be grown outdoors in sheltered areas if you cover with a deep mulch in winter.

Sowing Advice

Seeds may be sown at any time of the year onto a well-drained compost and covered about 5-10 mm deeply. Keep the pot moist at a temperature of between 18 and 22 degrees C in a well-lit position. Seeds should germinate within 2 to 6 weeks but may take much longer so do not discard the seed tray. Pot on small seedlings into 3 inch or 7cm pots until of a size suitable for final planting into a large pot or outside in warmer countries.
