A hardy annual, these seeds live in full sunlight and are even fully edible, the older leaves providing a peppery taste and the flowers sweet and spicy, perfect for salads or even this fishcake recipe.
To plant, simply:
- Select a 'poor,' unfertilized soil for your window box - they flower well on poor, hungry soil and withstand fairly dry conditions.
- Sow your seeds in your window box around 1.5cm deep and space them around 20cm apart into watered soil that has been well-drained.
- Water the seeds well until the young plants are established.
- Remove dead flowers to prolong the flowering period.
Happy planting X
