Candytuft Dwarf Fairy Mix Seeds
Info: Candytuft Dwarf Fairy Mix is a richly flowering, compact annual producing dome shaped plants (25cm high) with clusters of fragrant flowers in rose and pink pastel colours. Candytuft blooms in just 8 to 10 weeks from June to October and is an excellent plant for beds, borders, edgings and rock gardens. Self-sowing.
Sowing & care: Sow directly outdoors to the growing position after danger of frost has passed. Sow thinly to ensure adequate plant spacing and cover lightly with 2-3mm of fine soil. Continue successive sowing every four weeks for continuous flowers until October. Candytuft is quite undemanding and grows well in a sunny to semi-shady location on normal garden soil.
