Prepare to be enchanted by the Snapdragon's graceful allure. With petals that delicately ruffle like the pages of a cherished novel caught in a gentle breeze. With tall slender stems billowing with blooms they are a must for summer bouquets and great for pots too. Plants prefer cold weather and autumn sowings will do particularly well, can also be sowedred in Spring.

When to Sow: Sep - Mar

Sow under glass. Surface sow onto moist but well-drained seed compost. Do not cover the

seed.  Do not exclude light.  Ideal Temp 18-20°C.  Seedlings will be very small and should only

be watered from below to prevent disturbance.  When large enough to handle transplant

seedlings to 8cm pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days. Plant out after danger of

frost has passed. Seeds sown in autumn can be overwintered under glass for planting out the

following spring.

    Please note that the majority of our seeds are packed by volume so the number of seeds indicated is an approximation.

    We make every effort to provide British seeds where possible, but in some cases our British Growers are unable to grow in sufficient quantities to meet our demand or the seeds are subject to Plant breeders' rights which means it is only possible for us to buy these seeds from certain non UK flower farms
