Description – T&M are delighted to introduce this exclusive blend of dwarf Larkspurs. Each dwarf, 20-25cm (8-10 inch), flower spike is densely packed with attractive stock-like dwarf blooms in seven colours of pink, mauve, rose, purple, grey, white and shades of blue. Ideal for adding a little character to your borders and containers. The Seven Dwarfs will work happily in the garden planted in drifts alongside Malva moschata Snow White.
Sowing – Sow direct 2 weeks before last frost or in late autumn outdoors where they are to flower. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sow 3mm (1/8 inch) deep, in rows 30cm (12 inches) apart. Alternatively, sow in late summer in 7.5cm (3 inch) pots in a cool greenhouse and then overwinter plants in cool, well lit conditions. Plant out the following spring after all risk of frost.
Growing – When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 23cm (9 inch) apart.
Aftercare – Prefers a light, well drained soil in full sun. Flowers summer.
Flowers – June to August
