I have some larkspur seeds, but the packet doesnt say how and when to plant them or how long thier flowering season is!! Can anyone help? They are the Giant Imperial type. Thanks



I have a packet of dwarf larkspur seeds with full instructions but dunno if the instructions would be the same - shall I put instructions on here for you?

Hi Spindle, the packet says:

Easy to grow, weather resistant blooms are good in borders and as cut flowers.
Location - equally happy in sun or partial shade.
Sow - outdoors, March to May, thinly, a quarter-inch (0.5cm) deep in flowering position, or September to flower early the following year.
Growing on - thin out as necessary.
Spacing - 12in (30 cm) apart.
Flowers - June to September, or May to June from a September sowing.
Care - keep moist, sow at intervals for succession.
Uses - ideal in borders and as cut flowers.

Happy sowing, regards Sheila
