Plant wall­flow­ers

Garden Answers (UK) - - Easy Gardening -

If you sowed wall­flow­ers from seed in June they should be ready to plant out into their fi­nal grow­ing po­si­tions. They need plenty of space to grow into strong, bushy plants. (If you didn’t sow them, it’s a good time to look for young plants at the gar­den cen­tre.) How do you do it? Dig a hole slightly big­ger than their ex­ist­ing con­tainer, place some well-rot­ted com­post in the base, care­fully ease them out of their pot and pop them in the ground. Back­fill with soil, firm in around the stem and wa­ter well. If plant­ing in groups, space about 25cm (10in) apart. Do the same with bi­en­nial sweet Wil­liams, sweet rocket and for­get-me-nots.
