- Choose your seed flower colour to suit your pot colour (eg. Flat for red pot) and scatter a few seeds sparingly across the surface. You can use any surplus seeds in further pots or plant them direct outside.
- Place pots on a warm windowsill but not in direct sunshine (15-18C) and cover with paper. Keep moist and when the tiny plants appear carefully tease out the other little plants to leave one central one. Again you can transplant your spare plants inot other pots or trays.
- Grow on a well lit windowsill in cooler room (15C). When your plants are approximately 10-15cm high in June-July plant them out in the garden together witn any others you gave grown 15cm apart. Your 'Rainbow' plants will grow quickly - water them well in dry weather.
See your Rainbow coloured flowers from late June to September.
