Sow wall­flow­ers

Garden News (UK) - - What To Do -

For late spring colour in beds, bor­ders and con­tain­ers, wall­flow­ers take some beat­ing ei­ther on their own or in­ter­planted with tulips. Their del­i­cate scent is lovely on a warm spring day. Wall­flower plants will be avail­able to plant into the gar­den in Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber, but they can also be grown very eas­ily from seed. Sow seed thinly in seed trays of com­post, or out­side in a shal­low drill. When seedlings are a few inches tall they can be trans­planted to grow on in the gar­den, ready for au­tumn, when they can be planted in their per­ma­nent po­si­tion.
