Once the danger of frost has passed plant them outdoors 30-38cm (12-15″) apart choosing a sunny position and a moist well drained soil. Keep the plants well watered in dry spells and feed regularly with a liquid flowering plant or tomato fertiliser. To promote a bushy bushy habit regularly pinch out the shoot tips. Picking the flowers often will encourage more to be produced. Precautions should be taken to avoid slugs and snails attacking the plants. The plants are not fully hardy but can be over-wintered indoors or in a frost free greenhouse.

Believe it or not, these pretty little daisy flowers have a big surprise - they taste like citrus with a jolt of electricity!
