  • Biennial - flowers year after sowing
  • Beautiful 'cottage garden' flowers

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.

Using a quality, moist seed compost, sow your seeds 3mm (1/8") deep in seed trays and place on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at about 16°C (61°F) to germinate (usually 14-21 days). Transfer seedlings when large enough to handle into seed trays spacing them 5cm (2") apart, and grow on. Acclimatise to outside conditions before planting. Alternatively, sow seeds directly outside in May-June. Choose a sunny/partial shaded position.

Ideal for beds and borders. Prefers full sun or partial shade.
