Information on reverse of packet:
Hardy annual with striking red flowers on a broad white cross at base in mid-summer, followed by large pepper pot seed heads. Can self-sow, best in sun and moist well-drained soil.
Surface sow in moist compost in containers in autumn or early spring. Lightly cover seeds with a thin layer of fine grit. Seedlings resent disturbance so prick out as soon as possible. Alternatively sow in situ.
This packet contains one glassine bag of seeds.
