Low mounds covered with a mass of bloom. The semi-double flowers are carried well above the foliage and face upwards so all are visible. Mixture of cherry, rose, gold, mahogany, orange, scarlet, tangerine and cream. Ideal for bedding, borders, tubs, containers etc. Flowers can be cut for unusual floral decorations.

Culinary note: The peppery flavour of the leaves and colourful flowers will enrich salads and the unripened seeds can used like capers – delicious combined with cream cheese or butter in canapés.

Sowing

Sow outdoors where they are to flower. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sow 20mm ( 3/4in) deep, in rows 30cm (12in) apart.For earlier flowering: Sow seed, 1cm (1/2") deep, 3 seeds per 7.5cm (3in) pot, in free-draining, damp seed compost. Place at 20-29C (68-86F) until after germination. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after risk of frost. Before planting into containers, ensure plants are well rooted in their pots.

Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out after all risk of frost has gone.
