This improved mix is an essential component of any cut-flower offering. Prolific, double and semidouble blooms are easy to use in bouquets due to their smaller size. 2.5cm - 5cm blooms hold up well to handing compared to larger blooms which can snap at the stem due to the weight of the larger flower heads. Cut-and-come-again flower, yielding multiple cuts over the season.

Plant Height: 70-90cm

When: Spring and Summer

Sewing Depth + Method: Transplant (recommended) 4 weeks before the last frost. Cover seeds. A heat mat will help maintain an accurate temperature. Lower temperatures will result in slower germination: 5-7 days at (21-24°C). Harden off and transplant out after the last frost. Do not allow plants to become root-bound and avoid disturbing roots; transplant shock or other stress events may cause double-flowering varieties to produce single blooms for a period following stress. Direct seed - After the last frost
