Sow outdoors, between March and May, where they are to flower, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, directly into finely prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin them to 15 cm (6 inches) apart and water well until plants are established. For a continuous display, make sowings at two to three-week intervals. Sowings made in curves, rather than straight lines, often create a more pleasing effect. Enjoy the flowers from June to October.

Hints and Tips: Sow near the house, or in pots on the patio, so that the wonderful, strong fragrance can be enjoyed on summer evenings.

    I bought these to replace the same plant I’d dig up accidentally. After sowing they took a while to germinate but managed a nice large clump which I them split. The night scent off these tiny flowers is amazing

    I’ve used seeds from Mr Forthergills before with great success. I think these will be equally as good.

    No flowers at all – area where I sowed them is full of weeds. I want refund for 6 packets I bought

    Lucky if there was 50 seeds in this pack, opened to plant them as it’s coming up to March, and literally a tiny bit in the corner of seeds. States 250 on the packet.

    Non seeded so pretty much a waste of money
