Semi-double and single blooms of cerise, carmine, red, orange and yellow. For cutting, pick when tightly furled.
Sow mid spring to early summer where the plants are to grow, setting the seed 6mm deep, preferably in an open sunny position in any ordinary well drained soil.
Thin the seedlings to 15-23cm (6-9in) apart when large enough to handle. Remove the flowers regularly as they fade to prolong flowering.
