When to Sow
Sow in the Spring or Autumn.
Ideal for those small corners where there is a piece of bare ground or in borders or in pots to create a show.
After flowering, allow the seeds to dry out and fall to the ground. Cut the plants down when all the seed has been shed and remove the cut stalks. Lightly rake the ground to disturb the soil which will encourage the seed to germinate for the following year.
