Hardy Biennial (Self sowing, and clumps often remain perennial). Spires of pure white, shading to cream buds, single blooms up 1.8m. high stems. Classic old garden favourite – loved for their low maintenance, and continuous long display of spectacular flower spires.

Sowing Advice-
Sow onto the surface of moist well-drained seed raising mixture. Cover lightly with 2mm. of mix. Light is needed for seed germination. 15-21°C optimum temperature if using a heat mat. Germination takes approx. 14-21 days. Once germinated place in a well aired and lit area. Or sow directly into the garden in spring. Very easy to germinate.

 Plant Direct-
Prefer a well-drained soil in Sun to Partial Shade. Very water-wise plants. Heat and drought resistant. Frost hardy. Not fussy about soil type.  Respond well to blood and bone fertilizer. Flower the second year after sowing seed, or first year if seed sown early.
