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 (1/2") deep direct into a finely raked, moist, warm, weed-free seed bed. Germination usually takes 40-50 days. As the seedlings develop, thin them gradually to achieve a spacing of 15cm (6") apart. Transfer your young plants to a site in full sun in autumn for flowering the following year spacing the plants 30cm (12") apart.

Ideal for beds and borders. Attractive to bees and butterflies. Prefers full sun.
