Ageratum Seeds Blue Mink Suttons
The Ageratum ‘Blue Mink’ is an old variety of flossflower that remains popular today, and for good reason. Compact and uniform, the plant bears large and fluffy, powder blue flowers with a vigorous and open habit. Perfect for adding texture and colour to beds, borders or containers. They are also wonderful for attracting pollinating insects into your garden.
Sow from later winter to mid spring at a temperature of 15-18C in good quality seed compost. Sow on the surface of your compost and firm down gently. Keep your soil moist but not wet and do not exclude any light. Germination will take from 10-15 days.
When your seedlings are large enough to handle, acclimatise them to the cooler outdoor conditions for up to 10 days before planting out. Transplant outdoors in a sheltered and sunny position with moist and well drained soil at a distance of 15-30cm apart.

Dwarf Runner Bean Hestia is ideal for small gardens, large containers and borders where its bicoloured flowers of red and white make an attractive addition.
