DESCRIPTION: Compact annual with vivid magenta flowers and fine foliage. Great for potted colour and borders. PLANTING: Autumn (and Spring where it's cooler). Sow seeds directly into garden beds or pots, on the surface of the soil, and keep moist. Plant in free draining soil in a cool partly shaded location. Protect from extreme heat. CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water especially during dry spells and through the growing season. If plants become dry they may die back. Simply trim the affected areas and water well. They'll generally recover quickly. Apply liquid fertiliser regularly for prolific flowering.
