Sweet William Double Mix Seeds
Info: Sweet William Double Mix is a very popular and easy to cultivate biennial garden flower. It blooms in many different colours from white to pink to dark red, monochrome and multicoloured. A real eye-catcher in the perennial bed. It blooms the year after planting, from May/June til the end of July.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow seeds sparingly in trays or directly outdoors from late spring (May) to autumn (September) for blooms the following year. Sweet William likes sunny to semi-shady locations, regular watering and nutrient-rich, permeable soils. If you regularly remove the dead flowers, you will prolong the flowering time. Also suitable for pots and tubs.
