Sow the seed thinly direct into finely raked, moist, warm, weed free soil where the plants are to flower 7mm (¼") deep. Germination normally takes 10-20 days.  As the seedlings develop thin them in stages to achieve a final spacing of 23-30cm (9-12"), using the spare plants to fill any gaps. Ensure that any weeds are removed especially during the early stages of growth.

 

Ideal for beds and borders. Suitable as cut flowers. Prefers full sun. Easy to grow, tall border plants.
