Busy Lizzie sowing guide

Petite and delicate looking blooms in a range of pink, red and white shades. This Divine mixture will provide masses of tiny blooms throughout the whole summer and into winter. Mildew-resistant spreading variety, that will quickly fill patio containers, hanging baskets and cover flower beds and borders.

Sow seeds indoors from February to April on the surface of a good seed compost, and lightly cover with a little compost and cover with propagator lid. Alternatively create humidity by placing seed tray in plastic bag and keep in a warm environment between 20 - 25°C. Germination can take up to 3 weeks, when seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into larger 7cm pots and grow on in cooler conditions. In May when all risk of frost has gone, transplant outdoors where the plants are to flower, acclimatise by placing outside during the day for 1 week. Plants will begin to bloom from June until October.

Remove spent flowers regularly to encourage further blooms throughout the summer.
Busy Lizzie petals are often used to brighten up cocktails and summer salads.
