Light up your borders and containers with masses of semi-double, medium-sized flowers of vibrant scarlet, orange and yellow. Height 30cm (12″).
Sow in a propagator on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approx.18-21°C using a quality, moist compost. Cover the seeds lightly with 3mm of compost. Do not exclude light as this assists germination; 7-1 Sdays. Transplant singly into 9cm pots taking care not to damage the main root. Grow on and gradually acclimatise plants prior to planting out 41cm apart in a sunny position.Alternatively sow direct into garden soil from March-May for late summer flowering.
