A delightful old favourite! Cushions of golden yellow flowers with tiny double petals and a slight dab of green for an eye! Very compact cute plants, 60 cm (2 ft) ht. Blooms are 10 cm (4 in) across.
Direct seed in garden after the soil has thoroughly warmed in the spring, covering seed with 1/2 cm (1/4 in) of soil. Keep soil moist until all seedlings appear. For earlier flowers start seed 4 weeks prior to intended date of transplanting outside. Germinates best at 21 C (70 F) in 7 to 10 days. Grow on at 16 C (62 F). Fertilize every 2 weeks with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants. Garden spacing 40 cm (16 in) apart.
