Companion planting can transform your garden. By encouraging in pollinators and predators with key plants, you can gain a tiny gardening team to do your pest control & pollination, all with the added benefit of supporting British native wildlife by providing habitats and food sources.
In return, their natural behaviours will increase your crop productivity and reduce insect pest numbers. Companion planting was widely used centuries ago in cottage gardens in Britain, but has since declined, as have the numbers of pollinators and predators.

Sow the seed 13mm (½") deep direct into finely raked, moist, warm, weed-free soil where the plants are to flower. Germination usually takes 10-15 days. As the seedlings develop, thin them gradually to achieve a final spacing of 30cm (12") apart. Alternatively, sow direct during August or September to flower the following spring. Grow best in a fertile, well-drained soil in an open sunny position.
Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers. Attractive to butterflies, bees and birds. Prefers full sun.
