This little beauty is one of the traditional cottage garden plants, carrying congested heads of brilliant scarlet Maltese-Cross-like flowers right from spring into late summer. It is very long-lived and is a bonus in any garden.
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.
